About this item

The next crucial step in making the aircraft industry sustainable is the full electrification of commercial aircraft, declares Desmond, with energy sourced from power stations that are themselves sustainably fueled. He describes the development of aircraft and of batteries, and the efforts of the aviation community so far in moving to a new, more silent, and less polluting era of electric propulsion. Among his topics are electricity goes to war, the lithium advantage, toward commercialization, flying cars, and into the future. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
