Can you describe your personal journey to the Cassio?

I have a long-held belief that aviation can be more environmentally friendly with the use of an alternative source of propulsion. The work I performed when I was chief technical officer at Airbus included everything from understanding and benchmarking varied technology to the integration of electric propulsion on aircraft. That enabled me to fully appreciate the promise of electric aviation. But when I left Airbus in 2016, the hardest part was that it interrupted my focus on electric aviation. I decided to continue that with VoltAero and the Cassio.
