In the last two years over one hundred credible electric and hybrid-electric aircraft projects have been launched. Two-seater electric aircraft are already flying. This is to ignore the multitude of small drones and electric toys which proliferate. The speaker will examine the possibilities for large, passenger aircraft, electric propulsion, considering more electric, hybrid-electric and fully electric options. He will explore the challenges, which are technological, safety-related and legislative. Fasten your seat belts for an electrifying ride!

Optionally followed by supper (this can be booked on the event booking form).
After the lecture a Friends' Table has been reserved at a local restaurant to entertain the speaker and for any of the audience who would like to join us to continue the evening's discussion. A two-course fixed price supper is served including wine, coffee and service charge.
