Project Mission

The overall mission for the Boeing Electric Flight project is to explore the viability of an all-electric commercial aircraft designed to replace a Boeing-737-like aircraft with comparable cruise speed, range and passenger capacity. In exploring the viability, the project seeks to develop a lithium air battery as well as explore and optimize non-conventional wing designs for testing.
