Over a hundred years ago, when the first Paris Air show was held, not even Science Fiction Writers could have imagined what would be on display at the world’s oldest Air Show in 2015! This year, the 51st time the Air Show has put aviation on display (the Paris Air Show is held every two years!) found over 350,000 people strolling around the tarmac at the Le Bourget Airport feasting their eyes on what is, and what may be, in the world of aviation.

“In keeping up with what is going on in the world of flight,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, explained, “we get somewhat of a pulse beat as to what type of training will be necessary in the future for those who may want to train at our facilities.”

One of the “big draws” at the air show was the Flaris jet produced by METAL MASTER out of Poland. The craft, which weights a mere 1500 pounds, is a single-seat private jet, actually small enough to fit in a garage, and requires a grass airstrip of less than 2000 feet to take off. In the United States, both CESSNA and ECLIPSE are releasing similar “mini-craft,” which, though a little on the pricey size ($1.2 million), may be an answer to the clogged highways!

“One of the things I found intriguing,” Jason Wolcott, TURBINE TRAINING’s Vice President, offered, “is what some are referring to as the ‘Tesla of the sky.’ Running solely on battery power, the planes in question will leave a zero carbon footprint, which is most appealing to those of us who are concerned about the effect of flying on the environment. AIRBUS was displaying its ‘E-fan’ plane that is fully electric, and has batteries that can be recharged in an hour. They hope to have,” he went on, “a two-seater trainer craft on the market in or around 2017.”
