A universal mobile charger for VoltAero's Cassio family of electric-hybrid aircraft was unveiled by the French aircraft developer at this year's Dubai Airshow.

The intelligent charging unit is part of VoltAero's strategy to create the infrastructure for its Cassio aircraft family. The charger also will be offered for applications with other e-aircraft and eVTOLs.

Capable of delivering energy to recharge the Cassio 330 in approximately 30 minutes, the charger uses a smart combination of supercapacitors and batteries for a power output of 100kw. As part of the unit's 'intelligence', it can be programmed for autonomous deployment to a designated location at an airport or landing zone for aircraft recharging.

"This latest development underscores how VoltAero and its partners are already taking steps beyond our development of the breakthrough Cassio family to evolve an optimised infrastructure that will support the e-aircraft sector," says CEO and CTO Jean Botti,.

In addition to this Dubai Airshow debut, the VoltAero display in the Dubai World Center (exhibit stand #V64) includes Kawasaki Motors' four-cylinder and six-cylinder internal combustion engines for the Cassio aircraft's electric-hybrid propulsion module. These engines will be able to operate with hydrogen, with VoltAero targeting a Cassio 330 electric-hydrogen demonstrator for 2025.
