Tesla Goes Open Source On Patents - Will Aviation Benefit?

  • Jun 12, 2014 2:02pm GMT

Today, Elon Musk announced that Telsa will release and make available all their patents related to their revolutionary electric cars.

This is clearly a huge boost to the electric vehicle movement - and hopefully a boost to the electric aviation movement as well.

Recently, Airbus flew their all-electric powered E-Fan, a single-seat prototype aircraft.

Which really makes you wonder - will the electric revolution come from the established manufacturers, a new start-up company, or in the garage of an EAA member?

This is truly going to be an exciting time for aviation.
