Reality vs Hype In Commercial Aviation: Miquel Ros Interviews Michael Barnard
CleanTechnico | 11/12/2022
I had a great  conversation recently with Miquel Ros on his Allplane podcast. It was a couple of hours of good discussion across a range of aviation-related topics, and I encourage people to listen in here instead of just reading my gloss.
My projection of aviation refueling through 2100 with its broad error bars was central. We had a good discussion about the drivers of the projection.
When Will Flying Taxis Get off the Ground?
Aviation Pros | 11/07/2022
Investors are pouring capital into start-ups racing to develop new electric aircraft that take off and land vertically like a helicopter but fly horizontally like an airplane. Major airlines are investing in some of these start-ups, betting that they will one day zip passengers between airports and city centers much faster than cars or public transit.
Drones in cities are a bad idea
Tech Crunch | 10/26/2022
It's year five, or maybe 10, of "drones are going to revolutionize transport," and so far we've got very little to show for it. Maybe it's time to put these foolish ambitions to rest and focus on where this technology could actually do some good, rather than pad out a billionaire's bottom line or let the rich skip traffic.

New eVTOL Aircraft Cabin Concept from Hyundai Motor Group’s Supernal
Clean Technica | 07/21/2022
Urban electric aircraft have been a fun topic for several years, yet we also don't really actually have any urban electric aircraft on the market. One day? One of the things that perk up my ears in this field is when a major automaker gets behind a product or buy a startup. After all, automakers are in the business of making and selling millions of complex, heavily regulated, consumer vehicles. On that topic, news this week is that Hyundai Motor Group is more focused than ever on developing "commercial urban and regional air vehicles and surrounding market." The latter indicates that even if Hyundai Motor Group isn't developing the vehicles, it is developing components of the vehicles.
