Replacement of Aircraft Makers will be Brutal

Replacement of Aircraft Makers will be Brutal

The replacement of aircraft makers will be brutal - no not Airbus and Boeing, the other big names, starting with those making light aircraft, then those making regional aircraft. Stuck in the past, these cannot make what is now needed.

New Focus on Fuel Cell Electric Aircraft

New Focus on Fuel Cell Electric Aircraft

Ten years ago, IDTechEx correctly predicted that fuel cell cars would be a failure. Fuel cells are more promising for aircraft compared to cars because aircraft, particularly eVTOL, have severe safety issues caused by cold, old or faulty batteries, the longer ranges being currently impossible.
