Travel is an inseparable part of human life. It is connected not only with private life but also with business life. People want to travel more, farther and faster. That is why air transport is currently one of the fastest-growing areas of passenger transport, and airlines carry more and more passengers from year to year. Due to the growing negative impact of air transport on the natural environment, research aimed at the development of technologies to reduce the negative impact of air transport is becoming more and more important. One of the possibilities for improving the situation is the use of alternative energy sources, limiting the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The paper aimed to analyze the meaningfulness of replacing the classic power unit in a light transport aircraft with a hybrid, combustion-electric power unit. Analyzes were made with the use of simulation methods for the PZL M-28 aircraft.
