The sixth FAIR competence network webinar on
Electric aviation 2021 technology overview
The FAIR project aims to share knowledge in the field of electric aviation. As a step to disseminate project information and share insights, the project hosted a webinar on October 27th with project partners BioFuel Region and MidtSkandia on guidelines for implementation.
Arne Smedberg (CEO), Ida Norberg (Project Manager) and Simon Oja (Communication Manager) from BioFuel Region presented their report ”Electric aviation 2021 technology overview”. They introduced their research on electric aircrafts, energy carriers, infrastructure requirements, rules, and regulations, with a conclusion that traveling with electric aviation most likely will be possible within five to ten years.

Kristin Frodahl Rognerud (Coordinator) and Hans-Peter Carlson (Coordinator) from MidtSkandia talked about the upcoming regional report and FAIR project challenges connected to among other things charging, regulations and procured air routes. They also elaborated on aviation in Norway, the extensive short runway network, and the north of Norway as an international test arena for green aviation and the booming regional industrialization.
The webinar dialogue touched on among other things procured regional transports and legislation, as well as electric aviation as a connector for tourism and the battery belt industries.
