Updating airplanes isn't being left out of solutions for the climate crisis. Beta Technologies is working to bring a sustainable network of electric airplanes to market and recently raised $368 million in Series A funding. Kyle Clark, founder and CEO, told Cheddar that electrification of flight is inevitable and predicted that commercial passenger planes could be available after 2024. "The first applications are not going to be dropping people in and out of Manhattan but serving some of the weekly commuters coming from outside of the city, closer to the city," Clark said.
