Re: Synthetic aviation fuels - the future for environmentally friendly aviation?

But if we figure out how to use hybrids for those shorter than 1 (even 2) hour flights the fossil fuel used in aviation will drop dramatically. Likely it might be cheaper for longer flights to use a percent of synthetic fuel. We just need to make significant improvements every year. Agreed. Instead...
