In February, United Airlines became the first major US airline to make an order for electric aircraft, often known as eVTOLs. American Airlines quickly followed with a $1 billion preorder for up to 250 eVTOLs from Vertical Aerospace. The electric aircraft is designed to fly over highway traffic without onboard pilots. Startups and aerospace behemoths are still pondering how to persuade the general public to accept the new technology.
