Nottingham has been chosen to develop the world’s first electric race aeroplane.

The University of Nottingham and Air Race E are creating a prototype plane which will use an electric motor, instead of the current petrol powered engine and the technology developed could shape the future of electric planes.

“There is no electric racing category running at the moment for aeroplanes in which people fly,” said University of Nottingham Research Fellow, Richard Glassock.

“This will be the first large category of piloted aeroplane that we know of.”
