Aluminium housing for innovative electrical airplane



During 8 months 12 ETH mechanical and electrical engineering students are developing a 4-seater electrical airplane with a modular battery system, based on a “Sling TSi”. 


SCHWARZ AG FEINBLECHTECHNIK actively supports the ETH team with Engineering services and the production of welded aluminium housings for the battery and the PDU/LB units.


Main goals of the project are the development of an efficient electric drive train and a modular battery system as well as proofing the certifiability of the aircraft. The ETH focus project will start in Sept. 2020 and end in May 2021. With the modular battery systems, the innovative cooling system, an optional range extender and an electrical motor the e-Sling is a unique and sustainable electric airplane.
