While electric aviation is mostly experimental today, or when not experimental, only working for unmanned drones (which still do a hell of a lot of good), the aviation industry has much bigger goals. They eventually want aircraft that can take off and land vertically (aka VTOL, or Vertical Take-Off and Landing), run on clean electric […]
