  1. XTI Aircraft; GE Aviation Catalyst™ For TriFan 600
    Announced yesterday at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI, XTI Aircraft are going with the GE Aviation Catalyst™ to power the XTI Hybrid TriFan 600. "XTI has been seeking out the best hybrid propulsion solution for the TriFan 600 and we believe the Catalyst is the right choice," said GE Aviation Turboprops General Manager Paul Corkery.
  2. "GE believes that parallel and series hybrid propulsion systems, those that include a turbine gas generator to take advantage of the energy density of jet fuel, will lead to much more capable aircraft for both traditional and emerging markets for many years to come. The Catalyst is a new, clean-sheet design that will greatly reduce fuel consumption, enabling longer in-flight missions and increased payload compared to other alternatives in this class", he continued. The XTI Trifan 600 is one of many hybrid or fully electric VTOL aircraft that are coming on stream for the commuter and air taxi markets in the future.
