Unlike current commercial aircraft, the Hero Zero by JDXP is powered by electric motors with batteries to drive propellers, complete with an on-board electric generator. Its wings are set high and to the back of the plane so they sit over the bulk of the plane’s weight, batteries and motors to improve the overall efficiency of the aircraft.

Its innovative design and material composition work together to minimize weight while maximizing aerodynamics, thus allowing the electric engines to achieve required minimums in distance and duration for flight times. The team says that every aspect of in-flight travel has also been considered, with sustainability at the core of refreshments and service offerings.
