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.

Material Handling EVs Update June 2019

Some call it intralogistics. Either way, this is the industry providing logistics in a confined area such as a factory, warehouse or dock. The vehicle part of the industry involves drayage trucks the size of on-road trucks and robotic automatic guided vehicles AGV but primarily it is about forklifts.

Tesla Aircraft

Expect seven-times the air traffic in 2050 increasing greenhouse gas X4 unless something radical happens. Elon Musk has made interesting statements about electric aircraft over the years. His Tesla will survive and prosper: if Tesla investors stop investing the Chinese will snap it up. Either way, somewhere down its list of priorities will be reinventing pure electric aircraft, so what does Tesla bring to the table?
