A former Rolls Royce engineer wants Alderney to start operating electric planes across the Channel Islands. Aviation expert, Mark Harrisson says the island is a great place to trial the project if politicians from across the Bailiwick back it.
Mr Harrisson says with the island's already 'fragile transport links', it could be a great place to get the project up and running.
He is currently part of Project Fresson, a UK government backed project led by aircraft manufacturer Cranfield Aerospace which is looking to push the development of electric planes.
Work is currently underway to electrify the over 700 BN-2 Islanders aircraft which is currently operated by Britten-Norman, the privately owned British aircraft manufacturer.
