Well, bill, I don't think so. Except for the new aircraft that are strictly solar powered. I don't think an airline is going to want to have a hybrid aircraft that will run on electric batteries until those go lose charge and then charge them up using an engine. There is no comparison of aircraft to vehicles. Aircraft use fossil fuels (Obama wants a fighter to fly on bio-fuel) and that is not changing but vehicles are being changed in they type of fuel they use. The American public is paying the price and I want nothing to do with hybrids - at this time. When they can pull a heavy load - then I will consider it. Until then, keep them in the laboratory and quit trying to make the American public pay the price.
