When this campaign started, some contributors were quick to ridicule the suggestion in the planning application that the proposed airstrip might include facilities for (silent) electric aircraft.
I thought you might be interested to read a recent news item from ‘Flyer’ magazine (https://www.flyer.co.uk), which shows a solar-powered charging point for electric aircraft installed at Old Buckenham Airfield in Norfolk.
The article goes on to say that the airfield is applying for planning permission for up to six further charging points, and is assisting other projects to promote zero-emission aviation. The project founder is quoted as saying, “Over the coming months we look forward to demonstrating what impact off-grid electric light aircraft can have for rural communities”.
To drag this back on topic (and away from the pearl clutching post having no bearing on the matter at hand) that solar-powered charger station is inspirational. Airfields are already wildlife havens as it is, units such as this can only add to GA's green credentials.
