( - Safran announces that EcoPulse, the hybrid-electric distributed propulsion aircraft demonstrator jointly developed by Daher, Safran and Airbus to support the aviation decarbonization roadmap, has successfully completed its first flight test in hybrid-electric mode.

The demonstrator flew with its ePropellers activated, powered by a battery and a turbogenerator.

EcoPulse took off from Tarbes airport on November 29 for a test flight that lasted around 100 minutes.

We have confirmed that this disruptive propulsion system works in flight, paving the way for more sustainable aviation," said Eric Dalbiès, Executive Vice President, Strategy, R&T and Innovation at Safran.

The lessons learned from the upcoming flight tests will feed our technology roadmap and strengthen our leadership position in future all-electric and hybrid-electric propulsion systems," he added.
