“All of us at Mayo Aviation are proud to be associated with such an environmentally-conscious project,” said Scott Dulaney, director of business development of Mayo Aviation. “Mayo Aviation has witnessed countless technological developments during our 32 years in the aviation charter, aircraft management and maintenance business. Like the development and implementation of GPS for aviation use, The Green Flight Project has the potential to be a complete game changer in the general aviation industry. Our entire team enthusiastically supports this project and is ready, willing, and able to support The Green Flight Project team.”
“It is exciting to welcome Mayo Aviation as our newest project sponsor,” said George Bye, CEO of Bye Energy. “We appreciate their recognition of the impact an electric-hybrid propulsion system is poised to have on business and general aviation.”
The Green Flight Project, which launched in mid-February, is intended to enhance the development of an electric and electric-hybrid propulsion system (EHPS) for commercial application. The initial objective of the project is to design and integrate a proof of concept electric propulsion system into an existing, proven Cessna 172 airframe.
Formed in 2008, Bye Energy is developing an electric and electric-hybrid propulsion system for light general aviation aircraft. Bye Energy is headquartered at Centennial Airport in Englewood, Colo., and also has offices in Scottsdale, Ariz., and Albuquerque, N.M. For more information: ByeEnergy.com.
