Unlocking new routes in Africa with e-flight
Today we are taking a leap into the future as we attempt to understand the opportunity offered to African aviation from new technologies, specifically e-flight.
At AviaDev in June 2022, the NACO team delivered a thought-provoking session on this topic, which can be viewed here https://youtu.be/CmFEEODUfiE
Accompanying the podcast is a white paper on the subject, which can be downloaded here https://bit.ly/naco22
In the podcast, we discuss:
What inspired the report and what it sets out to understand?
The sustainable technologies available currently
Why e-flight, rather than SAF or hydrogen power craft?
How close are we to commercialised electric flights?
What are some of the barriers holding back the implementation?
