    You have to be kidding? This is ground breaking stuff. Imagine a wing full of batteries which can be swapped easily and economically. Can you imagine what this would do to the costs of maintaining an aeroplane? I'd love to know what can realistically be expected as far as range goes.

    Imagine how much more quiet and vibration free it would be inside. I'm excited!

    I’m pretty sure there’s been an electric C172 available for a while now aimed at the training market.
    It has enough endurance for a one hour lesson (plus reserves) before needing to be recharged.

    Actually this is far more important than electric cars etc since MAINTENANCE is the biggest thing with planes - imagine no fuel flow/contamination/sabotage issues; far less ground time considering the mechanical simplicity of electric engines...

    Yeah, a bit, but it's more the way you act.

    Well clocks do have two hands on them and if they are very lucky a nice face.
