  2. Alice, the first all-electric passenger airplane, takes flight Jennifer Korn - Yesterday 5:01 p.m. The world’s first all-electric passenger aircraft has successfully taken to the sky. Alice, the first all-electric passenger airplane, takes flight - ABC17NEWS View on Watch Israeli company Eviation Aircraft successfully launched the Alice on Tuesday morning from Washington’s Grant County International Airport. The zero-emission plane traveled at an altitude of 3,500 feet for its eight-minute inaugural flight. “This is history,” Gregory Davis, Eviation’s president and CEO, told CNN Business.”We have not seen the propulsion technology change on the aircraft since we went from the piston engine to the turbine engine. It was the 1950s that was the last time you saw an entirely new technology like this come together.” With battery technology similar to that of an electric car or a cell phone and 30 minutes of charging, the nine-passenger Alice will be able to fly for one hour, and about 440 nautical miles. The plane has a max cruise speed of 250 knots, or 287 miles per hour. For reference, a Boeing 737 has a max cruise speed of 588 miles per hour. Eviation was founded in 2015 and has been pushing the Alice forward ever since. The company hopes to use the information gathered during Tuesday’s flight to review next steps and deliver aircrafts to customers by 2027 — though Eviation warns that plan is subject to change. “We’ve actually generated, frankly, terabytes of data with the data acquisition systems that we had on the aircraft, so we’re going to take a couple of weeks actually and review it to see how the aircraft performs versus our models and our analysis,” Davis said. “From there, we’ll understand what we need to do next.” The company says it expects to be working on developing an FAA-certified aircraft through 2025, followed by a year or two of flight testing before it can deliver Alices to customers. Three different versions of the Alice are in protoype stages: a “commuter” variant, an executive version, and one specialized for cargo. The commuter configuration holds nine passengers and two pilots, as well as 850 pounds of cargo. The executive design has six passenger seats for a more spacious flight, and the cargo plane holds 450 cubic feet of volume. But the Alice’s journey toward take-off has not been without issue. Plagued with delays, the Alice was originally expected to fly in 2021. Eviation faced executive turnover and a series of weather issues that hindered testing progress, pushing back take-off dates and announced fleet launches by years. Commuter airline CapeAir expected to put a fleet into service by 2023, serving routes across Boston and Cape Cod, but the purchased Alices have faced delay. DHL and Miami-based air charter company GlobalX have also announced plans to buy the plane.

  16. Cutting CBC would give twice The benefits to Canadians of defunding the CBC likely would greatly exceed $1.4 billion annually Cutting government spending is almost always beneficial but new Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre’s proposal to eliminate the CBC’s public funding is doubly so. Many other government-run institutions are so blatantly inefficient and do so badly that there is at least the silver lining that they sow public skepticism about further government expansion. The CBC is also inefficient and does badly but it is in the business of pushing stories and promoting ideas, and the ideas it promotes are those favouring government expansion. As Milton Friedman wrote, “Any institution will tend to express its own values and its own ideas … A socialist institution will teach socialist values.” An entity that gets $1.4 billion of its $1.9 billion in annual revenues from the federal government could not possibly have an internal culture favourable to free markets or antagonistic to large disbursements of public money for pet causes. Thus the double dividend of cutting the CBC’s funding: first, the savings to taxpayers and, second, less teaching of socialism. Of course, to say the CBC is in the business of teaching socialism is to paint with an overly broad brush. Some people at the CBC are not socialists, while others teach much more than socialism, notably: climate alarmism, identity politics, and especially the singular importance of diversity above all other considerations. The diversity promoted at the CBC is not diversity of thought, however, or the diversity that spontaneously arises as a result of bringing together many unique individuals, but rather the tiresome top-down diversity of the kind enforced by most modern university administrators. To work at the CBC today, former employee Tara Henley wrote in the National Post earlier this year, is “in my newsroom, to fill out racial profile forms for every guest you book” and “submit to job interviews that are not about qualifications or experience — but instead demand the parroting of orthodoxies, the demonstration of fealty to dogma.” On top of the CBC’s existing obsession with diversity, its regulator, the CRTC — yes, Mr. Poilievre, another government institution to put on the chopping block — is imposing additional diversity requirements on its staffing and programming. Its new requirements of the CBC include, among other things, minimum levels of expenditure on producers from “equity-seeking communities” (as if there were communities that don’t seek or deserve equity). The CRTC has also established something called a “woman intersectionality credit” to “incentivize expenditures on productions produced by Indigenous Peoples, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and persons who self-identify as LGBTQ2, who also self-identify as women.” The double self-identification methodology — or perhaps it’s self-identification squared — presumably is intended to promote equity by opening the door for anyone and everyone to attain the enviable status of being exponentially qualified for government-funded affirmative action. Friedman’s observation about socialist institutions teaching socialist ideas was actually in reference to the public school system. In Canada schools are a provincial responsibility but Friedman’s observation should provide Conservatives with an excellent idea on another government spending cut that would deliver the double dividend: university funding. In 2020-21, universities received $5.3 billion in federal funding on top of the $15.2 billion they already received from provincial governments. The CBC will of course always have its cheerleaders for government funding. On the day Poilievre was elected Conservative leader, CBC panellist and Toronto Star columnist Althia Raj juxtaposed his proposal to defund the CBC with her view that the broadcaster’s content (she gave no specific examples) shows “precisely why it is valuable.” But that’s a pure non sequitur. Something should receive public funding because it is valuable? The McDonald’s Corporation is worth US$181 billion, making it far more valuable than the CBC. Should it get federal funds, too? In a 2003 article in The Journal of Law and Economics four economists, including Andrei Schleifer of Harvard, examined media ownership in 97 countries, testing two competing theories of government ownership of media. According to the public interest theory, the government is providing a service that the market has failed to provide; according to the public choice theory, government ownership of media “undermines political and economic freedom.” The data, the authors concluded, support the public choice theory. Thus the benefits to Canadians of defunding the CBC likely would greatly exceed $1.4 billion annually. Financial Post
