Electric aircraft: Enabled, still struggling for market
While electric aircraft have gained press notice, they've lagged in market penetration, partly because buyers don't fully understand the potential for electric aircraft. "I think it all comes down to people's expectations. The most straightforward form of an electric airplane is one powered by batteries and batteries will always be a factor on the airplane, which is hindering endurance and performance," says Tine Tomazic, a developmental engineer for the Slovenian Pipistrel Aircraft.
