Why is this important?
Flying has become a way of life for many people. It is how we get from one place to another in a relatively short amount of time. However, the process of flying has a hidden cost – our environment. Airplanes use a lot of energy, and that energy often comes from dirty and unsustainable sources like oil and coal. But what if airplanes could fly on sustainable and regenerative energy sources? That would change everything. Not only would it be good for the environment, but it would also be more sustainable in the long run. So keep a close look at some of these sustainable and regenerative aviation technologies and see how they could change air travel forever.
