    Ampaire | Is this the Decade of Electrified Aviation?

    We are at the cusp of a new revolution in flight, from electrified to hydrogen powertrains and regional travel re-imaged to vertical takeoff. Everything is being changed to fit the needs of our world and environment. A lot of engaged companies have capital and fresh ideas, but what will win now and later?
