Abstract

Green transportation is transportation based on the use of new and renewable energy sources. Currently, the application of green transportation is highly important. Aside from reducing the use of non-renewable energy, it also aims to maintain the level of pollution, the greenhouse effect, and the stability of the earth's temperature, thus preventing global climate change. This research presents the concept and preliminary design of a green transportation that is a light aircraft with a capacity of two seats that is powered by an electric motor, or, as we know, an electric-powered light aircraft. The results of this electric motor-powered light aircraft are still experimental, but it is hoped that it can be mass produced and used as a private, trainer, surveyor, or sport aircraft in the future. The results of the research and design will determine the basics of aircraft configuration, dimension, and flight performance, such as maximum take-off weight, maximum landing weight, maximum cruising speed, rate of climb, rate of descent, maximum range, maximum endurance, ceiling point, electric motor and propeller model se-lection, power required, landing gear arrangement, and others.
