Electric Flight - - FROM THE COCKPIT -

JOIN THE JET SET

When it comes to ex­cite­ment, noth­ing beats the first flight of a new air­plane. The only thing even more ex­cit­ing is fly­ing an elec­tricpow­ered jet. Elec­tric ducted-fan jets re­ally kick it into over­drive with sleek ap­pear­ance and per­for­mance. In this is­sue, we have a guide for the best e-jets to help you get a feel for what’s avail­able. The prices vary, but all of them are ex­cel­lent val­ues when you con­sider the “wow” fac­tor. Strap in for a test flight on page 8.
