Inspired by: I am a retired Naval Aviator, Helicopter Test Pilot, and Operational Commander. I have established a goal for electric propulsion to expand hover flight operations to their highest, hottest, and heaviest potential for human benefit, sustainment, and survival. This goal is a subset of a grander vision to create a vertical flight vehicle that can project tropospheric dominance.
