How it works

The propulsion system is the key. Sustainable aircraft must get more energy out of their fuel to be able to fly and compete with traditional kerosene aircraft. Our engine does just that, it converts more energy to thrust than any other system on the market. It’s the most efficient and light propulsion system in the world by 4x and runs solely on electricity. Mako’s Forerunner is essentially the electric answer to the kerosene jet engine.
