The LH-10 Ellipse airplane has been developed by LH Aviation and DSM. Flying at 370 kilometres per hour -- 150 kilometres per hour faster than other planes in its class -- The Ellipse airplane is able to cross the whole of France (1,600 km) in one flight without refuelling. Fuel consumption is running under 5 litres per 100 kilometres, less than the average car.
The Ellipse is an exceptionally light two seater aircraft made of Aeronite® and carbon fiber. As well as its high strength and light weight, Aeronite® can be manufactured very efficiently at room temperature, making manufacturing more energy sufficient and improve LH Aviation's production speed.
