The aviation industry stands at the brink of a transformation, with electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOLs) and flying cars poised to redefine urban mobility. These innovations promise not only to cut down on the carbon footprint of traditional aviation but also to significantly reduce noise pollution, offering a cleaner, quieter future. However, the environmental implications of electric aviation are complex, extending well beyond the reduction of emissions during flight.

Expanding horizons: the potential of hybrid eVTOLs

In the rapidly evolving landscape of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, hybrid models are emerging as a significant trend, offering a blend of electric propulsion and conventional engines or fuel cells. This hybrid approach, while still embracing the eco-friendly ethos of electric motors, is seen as a pragmatic solution to enhance range and payload capacity, addressing some of the key limitations of purely electric eVTOLs.

The twenties bring a revolution in intra-urban air transport
