The previous papers have offered the distant vision of an all-electric aircraft¿one which fully exploits the intrinsic features of electric power and electronic controls. This paper examines the path to that vision and the barriers along the way¿some of which appear relatively easy to overcome while others are more formidable. It is interesting to conjecture what an all-electric aircraft will look like. The all-electric technologies may offer many design options and this paper suggests some… CONTINUE READING
