Let's face it: Fully electric car was total sci-fi just 15 years ago. And the fact that it could drive itself was totally unthinkable.
With that in mind, lets talk about next logical step: What needs to happen in order to have fully electric airliner in place?
In other words: I want to have an passenger airplane which is fully powered by electric power (batteries).
- I am thinking about something "small to mid size", replacing current propeller airplanes which are in service for commercial Airlines
- Such plane should be able to carry about 80 passengers plus luggage
- Plane should operate on "commuter" lines, replacing current propeller planes
So what hurdles do we have to solve in order to have Average Joe to be able board fully electric plane in 2030?
