Flybrid is an integrated concept aimed to the transformation of regional aviation at large. It is based on a novel 90-seat hybrid-electric airliner using only a variable quantity of pre-charged batteries to avoid in-flight battery recharge. This solution is framed within the airport system, in terms of both battery handling on the apron and battery recharging in dedicated areas that can be conveniently integrated as active nodes within a regional electric grid.
