Ion-Powered Aircraft: One Step Closer to Non-fossil Fuel Solutions

Ethan 1.png

Ethan Krass, founder and President of Electron Air, LLC, has a dream: to create the first Ion and electron wind powered craft to carry its power source onboard. 

To date, Ethan's prototype designs have demonstrated flight times exceed those of a helicopter of similar weight, with nearly silent flight.

His goals and objectives are:

  • Design an improved autonomous electron/ ion wind powered craft.
  • Serve the need for an improved, fast, and efficient form of flight
  • Commercialize and increase performance
  • Proof of sufficient and efficient sustained lift

The Ion-Powered Aircraft is the first invention supported by a Stardust micro-grant.  We are thrilled to be part of this effort to find new power sources!


Stand by for exciting updates!

 The patent is pending now, and the Stardust-Startup Factory respects the intellectual property "confidentiality" agreement we have signed with the inventor.
I have been advised not to send my invention/innovation information to you, as the advisor did not think my device was pertinent. I strongly disagree though so Iā€™m sending you the information anyway.

Be bold. Take a risk!

If Ethan would have listed to the advice he received, his proposal would have not submitted his proposal and would not have received a Stardust grant!

This project proposal was awarded Spring 2017.
