Jeff Zaltman, CEO of Air Race 1 World Cup and Air Race Events, representing the pinnacle of wing-to-wing air racing around the globe. He intends to use the technology of electrification to pioneer electric air racing, which, just like electric car racing, will lead to the mass development of electric powered aeroplanes.
“Our vision for the series is that we’re trying to take aviation into the future, trying to advance the whole aerospace industry. We’re doing that by enabling it to use electrification and taking it forward on the platform of motor sport,” says Jeff Zaltman.
“Motor sport is regularly used as a platform for development of technology, innovation and, of course, taking products to market, ultimately. We expect to be the motor sport platform for the aviation industry.”
The team of the IARF believes that electric air racing is a not-too-distant reality that could help accelerate a future of emission-free air travel.
