magniX Continued Flight Testing Reveals Electric Aircraft Significantly Reduce Noise Pollution

Thursday, April 8, 2021 - 2:00pm

EVERETT, Wash., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- magniX , the company powering the electric aviation revolution, today shared noise results from flight testing of the eBeaver aircraft which demonstrate a significant reduction in noise pollution from an electric aircraft versus a conventional one.

Key Points: 
  • EVERETT, Wash., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- magniX , the company powering the electric aviation revolution, today shared noise results from flight testing of the eBeaver aircraft which demonstrate a significant reduction in noise pollution from an electric aircraft versus a conventional one.
  • Several studies have shown the negative impact aircraft noise has on people including adverse effects to both physical and mental health.
  • In fact, one study published by Noise and Health International Journal found that aircraft noise is one of the most detrimental environmental effects of aviation.
  • With decreased noise, electric aircraft can open up greater mobility across airports that are currently restricted due to noise regulations.

GAINESVILLE, Fla., Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --IC2's DirectShear Sensors offer a breakthrough new tool for engineers and scientists to design cleaner, quieter aircraft.

Key Points: 
  • GAINESVILLE, Fla., Dec. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --IC2's DirectShear Sensors offer a breakthrough new tool for engineers and scientists to design cleaner, quieter aircraft.
  • Every single day, the global commercial aircraft industry consumes 250 million gallons of fuel.
  • Airframe noise is a major component of overall aircraft noise, and its reduction is a realizable benefit of better wall shear stress measurements.
  • Prior to the release of IC2's DirectShear sensors, wall shear stress was traditionally difficult to measure.
