At one time electrics were seriously considered because we were running out of fuel (circa 1973?). Now the excuse is “saving the planet” since there has been no word of a fuel shortage for the last 45 years. Seems that petrol works great for the average GA mission and even better for the airlines doing trans-oceanic flights (duh!). So why are we trying to convince people that we need an electric solution to GA? GA as a whole contributes so little to climate change that it’s truly laughable. Adapting cars to battery power has proven doable with just a couple major drawbacks, and many find the compromise worth it. Trying to adapt aircraft to battery power will be a whole new ballgame if you expect to cruise at 200kts for 4 hrs as it takes 4X the HP(watts) to achieve that speed over a 100kt puddle jumper. Or how about feeding a light twin with two 300hp electric motors? Seems there are a lot of breakthroughs to be had before the next Baron leaves the runway for a 800nm trip on battery power alone.
