Electric aviation has arrived and will be here to stay

Tierr@_de_N@die: Nordic countries pushing in the right direction. Electric aviation seems to be the unreachable horizon but the first step to break the boundaries is to set ambitious targets. 

The project is funded by Nordic Innovation, a sub-section of the Nordic Council of Ministers, which has identified sustainable transport as a strategic area. Fiskerud continued: “The Nordic countries have the prerequisites to be a pioneer – we created a standard for the GSM network, which we then exported to other countries. We want to create the same infrastructure for electric aviation. Our conditions in the north are special – with ice, rain, snow and cold temperatures – it places higher demands on the planes and infrastructure.”
