About

Faradair is developing a hybrid-electric aircraft concept that solves three core problems hindering regional flight growth:

Cost of Operations

Noise

Emissions

An innovative, clean-sheet designed aircraft specifically configured for sustainable regional flight, BEHA aims to achieve significant reductions in these areas whilst delivering an economically viable asset for operators.

 

A multi-role asset, BEHA converts from an 18 passenger configuration to cargo in just 15 minutes. Accommodating three LD3 cargo containers and payloads of up to 5 tons, BEHA is an environment-neutral utility workhorse, maximizing revenue opportunity 24/7.

 

Hybrid-electric flight provides a cost-effective distributed aviation model, enabling local airfields the ability to offer scheduled and charter flight services to regional towns and cities at a price-point unmatched through traditional major airport hubs.
