Washington Governor Jay Inslee (right) touring electric airplane developer Eviation Aircraft’s Arlington, Washington, facility in September 2021. Inslee is counting on electric planes and other technology solutions to square aviation growth with the state’s statutory requirements to cut carbon emissions. Eviation is promising 2024 delivery for its all-electric commuter jet, but the 9-seater has yet to make its maiden flight. Aviation and climate experts deem it unlikely that technology solutions can deliver emissions reductions agreed to by the global aviation industry. (Photo via Twitter)
