We’re starting to see zero-emission battery-electric vehicles as a regular sight on our roads, but what about a similar approach to propulsion in the skies?

American aircraft manufacturer, Bye Aerospace, believes there is a strong and viable future for electric aircraft and has developed the eFlyer 2 training prototype to prove it. The eFlyer 2 would reduce the operating costs of a typical piston-engined aircraft by about 80%, and even using current technology would be recharged enough for a 1-hour flight in around 20-minutes. It’s expensive though, but as the technology develops, should become more accessible.
