Team aims to fly 300 mph on batteries
Electroflight, a team of British glider builders, recently announced it has teamed up with Williams Advanced Engineering to build a single-seat airplane that will set a new speed record for electric aircraft of 300 mph. Team Electroflight has built a mock-up of its design, and said it will be powered by a "unique contra-rotating electric propulsion system." Williams is affiliated with the Williams Martini Formula One car-racing team, which is developing technology to compete in a new fully electric car-racing series, called Formula E, that is set to debut this month.
