Private Aviation Going Green

  • Aircrafts being built to be fully electric
  • How private charter companies are trying to become more environmentally friendly
  • The ins and outs of the fully electric aircraft “Alpha Electro”

Many aircraft charter companies are realizing their impact on the environment and are looking for ways to become more environmentally friendly. Some of the most recommended ways to help reduce carbon emissions is to switch to hydrogen and electric power. By the year 2030, if private jet charter companies can switch over to these more environmentally friendly ways or power, we can reduce private jet emissions completely. Another way private jets can help the environment is as technology advances, companies should slowly substitute electric aircrafts for their carbon emitting aircrafts. When better alternatives exists, companies should do their best to use these options whenever they can.

As electric aircrafts become more commercial, companies such as Pipistrel are selling the Alpha Electro, which is an electric aircraft certified by the Federal Aviation Administration. This jet is powered by a 21 kWh battery which is 20% the power of what a Tesla battery has. As technology advances, new electric aviation records are being set, and carbon emissions in the atmosphere are being cut down drastically. Before we know it, all private charters will be electric.
