Electrical Motor Technology for Regional Air Mobility Passed to Test

Some members of global CAP team celebrate

The team has now finalised the assembly of the first model of this motor design, mounted it onto a test bench and conducted its first passive test successfully. With this passive test, they can prove the basic mechanical and electrical functionality of the motor, giving us the confidence to move on to the next test steps in Munich, Germany. In the following weeks, the motor will undergo further rigorous testing to help us validate our design assumptions and improve the design for further iterations.

A global team across five locations have been working closely together to make this success happen.

While the assembly and test have taken place in Trondheim, Norway, the team that designed the motor and planned its assembly and test is spread across Germany and Hungary as well.
