This is interesting, out of the UK too. At Hyperion we are already speaking to clients in air emobility. Could this raise interest, awareness, and improve the technology in the same way that Formula E has for ground based electric vehicles. Quite but exciting, I'll be watching this space, or air!
Air Race E, which is set to run its inaugural race in 2020, will see electric airplanes racing directly against each other on a tight circuit just above the ground and at speeds faster than any land-based motorsport. Formula Air Race planes are the only airplanes in the world designed specifically for racing and built to a specific race formula.
