The name ‘Faradair’ is inspired by Michael Faraday, the 19th century English scientist who contributed to the fields of electromagnetism and electrochemistry. His main discoveries include electromagnetic induction, diamagnetism and electrolysis, more commonly known in principles such as ‘Faraday’s Law’.
Many have called him one of the greatest scientific discoverers of all time and his work in the field of electric dynamo’s heralded the invention of the electric motor, a fundamental element to our new aircraft design.
As a British based company, we take pride in Michael’s achievements along with the fantastic record the United Kingdom has with regards to aviation innovation. The Sopwith TriPlane, the Spitfire, the Merlin engine, the jet engine, the world’s first jet airliner the Comet, the Harrier Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) jet, the Vulcan, Concorde and many more, all have been state of the art innovations within aviation at some point.
In time, we hope that Faradair will also be seen as a pioneer within ‘Hybrid’ aviation, demonstrating once more that the UK is still a leading innovator within the aviation sector as we have recognised the need for cleaner, quieter air transport that increases aviation growth opportunity between cities throughout the world.
The recent agreement in Paris at COP21 has highlighted the need for nations across the world to look at how we can reduce our impact on the planets natural resources as the global population grows. It was through innovation by the likes of Michael Faraday that our lives were made easier and now, we are using innovation and technology to produce more eco-friendly forms of air transport. BEHA is our first step on that journey and we welcome you to join us and support us in our venture.
