I found the Cafe Foundation blog while researching for another project. Electric power is hot right now in the private aviation market and technology we will be using in the near future will come from the testing and development e-flight engineers are doing in full-scale aircraft. More info and links after the jump.
CAFE Foundation creates and advances the understanding of personal aircraft technologies through research, analysis, and education. "Aircraft are submarines that swim in a sea of air" ---Lyle S. Powell Jr. Besides overcoming the force of Earth's gravity, aircraft must maneuver against the friction and pressures of a surprisingly viscous and powerfully turbulent medium—Earth's atmosphere. By comparing how aircraft move through this 'sea of air', the enthusiast members of CAFE have pioneered valuable new ways to study aerodynamics and improve personal aircraft.
Great info and pictures of the future of electric vehicles.
