if i use corona based discharge emmiters in order to ionize air, can i accelerate that air in electric field, having the ion life factor unpredictable? i know the ionization potential of each molecule, as well as new energy, speed, and all variables, can i figure out stability time of ions?

if you mean propulsion system, then yes. i wanted to make small thruster that will use accelerated ions as thrust mass, injecting them out with high velocities.
