The future of flight

EV World have published an interesting article outlining potential aviation propulsion systems for a post peak oil world. In it they discuss breakthroughs and research, electrical storage and propulsion, electrically-powered supersonic flight, power generation, energy storage and power regulations.

We won’t see any of this technology in aviation in the near future but it does make for interesting reading. The linked page on Henri Coanda and his Coanda – 1910 Air Reactive (Jet) Aeroplane is also a good read.
