    Electric Hybrid

    Engine weight to electric motor is at least 50% saving.for 2 engine = 5,000 Lbs,CFM56-5A series produces 22,000 Pounds x 2 44000 pounds trust,8000 KW Needed to produce same thrust but at 80% Speed,500 Mph, I have calculated for duct fan with 48in blades 24in pitch at 7200 RPM,SO there will be...
