    He also discussed - and there's a complementary podcast shown to the right of the screen when one clicks that link - that Li-ion batteries as applicable to airplanes are on their way. Now, for the moment he's talking about 12V engine-starting batteries, but it's heartening to hear the aviation community is looking toward electric airplanes, eventually.
