The New York Times has a long article about a startup called Beta at Burlington International Airport (Canadian flights make it sound bigger) that’s developing an electric piloted airplane with the idea of carrying cargo on short trips (batteries don’t last that long) to replace short-haul trucks on the road. Dean Kamen is among the investors.
The story is here.
The Valley News had a good followup (here) when a test flight came to New Hampshire.
UPDATE: I thought this was news but SevendaysVermont has reported on this company since 2018.
