Solutions related to safeguarding the environment must take priority in the design of new products. The search for alternative energy sources to petroleum as the main means of propulsion for much of today's transport has long been at the forefront of international endeavour.

In the field of aviation, although currently limited only to light aircraft, numerous experiments have achieved encouraging results using electric motors powered by rechargeable batteries, solar panels or hydrogen-powered cells, the so called "fuel cells". Within this context we would like to include a new study for a light aircraft which, due to its reliability and low running costs, seems ideally suited for use in Aeroclubs. Electrically-powered flight is very relaxing due to the low noise levels and the instantaneous power availability of the vibrationless engine. This kind of flight, typical of the motor glider, is highly formative and complementary to gliding, the most complete and rewarding type of flight.
