In 2019 air travel accounted for 2.5 percent of global carbon emissions, producing about 915 million tonnes of CO2.
Although airlines are offsetting their contributions to carbon, electric airplanes could provide the scale of transformation required to have a significant impact, and
many companies are racing to develop them. Similar to electric vehicles, electric airplanes could reduce fuel costs by up to 90 percent, maintenance by up to 50 percent, and noise by nearly 70 percent. Imagine a future where your flight was so much quieter!
During this webinar we will take flight on air-electric: highlight the great potential of electric aviation, the advantages, what upcoming aviation projects, and many more panelists.
