However, the concept hasn’t been ready for application yet. The organization is still designing the electric plane and hasn’t decided on partnerships as well as sponsors for the 2020 race. Air Race is likely to conduct this all-electric race the same way it does in the current races, with the same instructions for a single electric motor powered light and fancy plane specifically for racing.

This all-electric race can be a great motivation for the industry of electric aviation, provided that the event will serve as a foundation for every plane to showcase their power in the sky.
