ScoMo will be very alarmed to hear about this. Not only will his ute be snatched from him and he will be made to drive an electric car, but he will be forced onto an electric plane as well.
Over the last decade significant progress has been made in developing aircraft powered by electricity. As things stand, such planes are capable of doing short flights. The fact that they are significantly less costly to run than planes using aviation fuel means that it is possible to develop a number of short-flight routes that feed into the major routes, and increase the regional coverage of airlines. And of course, they are so much more environmentally friendly.
