    Latest Technology: Electric airplane from Sonex takes to the skies

    Post by Meesh on Wed Dec 22, 2010 3:06 pm


    The world’s first electric airplane comes from Sonex and we can say that it looks promising. Of course, electric airplanes aren’t as safe as electric cars or bikes, especially if you run out of power in mid air, so we’re doubting that we’ll see them anytime soon as passenger aircrafts, but that doesn’t mean that electric airplanes do not exist and that they don’t work.



    The electric airplane from Sonex can fly and it was taken for a test fly recently. In order to prove that their airplane is safe, Sonex chairman and E-Flight captain John Monnett flew together in the electric plane. Everything went well, and these two have proven that electric planes are real and that they are safe. Only thing that Sonex has to do, is to find a way to extend the flight duration, therefore, we doubt that we’ll see electric airplanes in stores anytime
    soon.

    They should make a hybrid airplane. Electric powered and gas powered perhaps? So just in case they run out of electric power they've got gas to back it up. But then what happens when you run outta gas...we're screwed either way D: I hate flying although I don't have a fear of heights..planes just irk me.

    lol yea that sounds like a great idea. im sure if it was a hybrid then it would win some votes on it being ok to use and let ppl be more at ease. besides if its a small plane like that one in the pic im sure u cant go to far with out having to take a pit stop now and then.
