Could electric planes be the next big thing for regional and short-haul flights? Ampaire, an innovative aircraft company from Los Angeles, California believes so, and has been working on a project featuring an electric plane with a unique and advanced design.Here’s what CEO and Co-Founder Kevin Noertker has to say about his company and its vision for the future of electric air travel.
We were honored to have Bertrand Piccard the initiator and visionary behind Solar Impulse, the very first airplane capable of flying perpetually without fuel visit with us. It is in his DNA to go beyond the obvious and achieve the impossible as he did with his two round-the-world flights, one in a solar-powered airplane, and before that non-stop in a balloon. Following the success of the first solar flight around the World, the Solar Impulse Foundation has launched the second phase of its action: selecting #1000 solutions that can protect the environment in a profitable way, and bring them to decision makers to encourage them to adopt much more ambitious environmental targets and energy policies. We are hoping to be one of them.
