Bye Aerospace

Bye Aerospace is developing the 2-seat all-electric flight training airplane called Sun Flyer at Centennial Airport near Denver. Due to the significantly lower structural parts count and lower cost of electric propulsion components as compared to piston-engine equipped aircraft, AEAC is able to produce the Sun Flyer trainer for much less than a typically equipped piston-engine flight trainer such the world's most produced aircraft, the Cessna 172. Sun Flyer certification sets the stage for introduction of a whole family of electric aircraft.

Tesla Aircraft

Expect seven-times the air traffic in 2050 increasing greenhouse gas X4 unless something radical happens. Elon Musk has made interesting statements about electric aircraft over the years. His Tesla will survive and prosper: if Tesla investors stop investing the Chinese will snap it up. Either way, somewhere down its list of priorities will be reinventing pure electric aircraft, so what does Tesla bring to the table?
