Small Electric Aircraft Bring the Future of Aviation

Small Electric Aircraft Bring the Future of Aviation

It is easy to say that, although small electric aircraft are at last selling, they are a negligible part of the overall aircraft market. Mistake. They will work up from the bottom to be mainstream. Airbus, Boeing and Rolls Royce know this, but many others are sleeping through the future. Some of the successes are from small companies.

Electric Light Aircraft Order Rush: Deeply Significant

Electric Light Aircraft Order Rush: Deeply Significant

Not long ago it was just dreams. Small internal-combustion aircraft provide taxi services, serve the declining market for private flying and a few other needs. Some are over 30 years old because total cost of ownership is an issue. Designing electric replacements seemed like entering a dust bowl.
