Heart Aerospace battery and SAF-powered ES-30 electric aircraft receives $10m funding boost

Heart Aerospace’s ambition to have its ES-30 electric aircraft take off by 2028 has been boosted by $10m investment from Air Canada and Saab ($5m each).

The hybrid aircraft will be powered by batteries and sustainable aviation fuel.

It will offer a range of 20okm, an extended range of 400km with 30 passengers, and fly up to 800km with 25 passengers.

Anders Forslund, founder and CEO of Heart Aerospace, said, “The ES-30 is an electric airplane that the industry can actually use.

With the ES-30 we can start cutting emissions from air travel well before the end of this decade.”
