Air New Zealand's Electric Flight Initiative Prepares for Takeoff

MarketJar

Air New Zealand just announced bold plans to introduce all-electric cargo flights by 2026, marking a significant leap toward sustainability in the aviation industry. 1 With a length exceeding 39 feet and weighing three tonnes, the The Beta ALIA electric cargo aircraft can reach speeds of up to 168 miles per hour. Extensive test flights have demonstrated its capabilities, covering nearly 300 miles on a single charge, with a charging time of 40 to 60 minutes, highlighting the practical feasibility of electric aviation for commercial operations. Initially focusing on cargo transportation, the aircraft will collaborate with New Zealand Post to shuttle mail between the two airports, showcasing the practical utility of electric aviation in essential services. In December 2023, Air New Zealand's CEO Greg Foran emphasized the pivotal role of sustainable aviation fuels in reducing the airline's carbon footprint. He highlighted the potential of next-generation aircraft to significantly cut emissions, particularly in regional operations. The Beta ALIA aircraft represents a vital advancement in emission reduction efforts. Data from 2023 revealed that aviation contributed 12% of New Zealand's carbon emissions, a stark contrast to the global average of 2.8%. 2 Kiri Hannifin, Air New Zealand's chief sustainability officer, said that nearly all airports across the country had shown keen interest in securing routes, underscoring the widespread enthusiasm for sustainable air travel. Air New Zealand isn’t the only company looking to launch all-electric aircraft in the near future. Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM) is a Los-Angeles-based regional air mobility platform transforming regional flying through electrification. Surf Air Mobility isn’t just an EV aircraft startup. Its subsidiary Southern Airways is already the largest commuter airline in the US based on scheduled departures, flying more than 450,000 passengers on ~75,000 flights to 48 destinations in the US in 2022. Now, the company has partnered with commercial leaders to develop revolutionary new technology to upgrade the widely popular Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft with fully electric and hybrid-electric engines for passenger air travel, once certified. With expertise spanning aviation, electrification, and consumer technology, Surf Air Mobility is well-positioned to drive forward the electrification of air travel, ushering in a new era of sustainable aviation. Surf Air Mobility Forges Ahead in Electrifying Regional Air Travel: Partnerships, Milestones, and Financial Outlook Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM) just announced its fourth quarter and full year 2023 results, showcasing growth and development in its regional air mobility platform. The company exceeded guidance, with a GAAP revenue of $60.5 million and pro forma revenue of $112.9 million for the full year, marking a 12% year-over-year increase. In Q4 2023, Surf Air Mobility solidified key partnerships and agreements, signaling its dedication to innovation and expansion. The company deepened its collaboration with Palantir to develop advanced software solutions, including continuing work on an AI-enhanced 'crew scheduling' application. Additionally, Surf Air Mobility continues to advance its initiative to electrify the Cessna Caravan, and is in the final stage of vendor selections for key components, including battery and electric motor suppliers. Surf Air Mobility extended its global footprint by collaborating with Brazil's Azul, the largest airline in the country, to work toward introducing electric Cessna Caravans into Azul's existing fleet. The company also delved into the burgeoning seaglider market through a partnership with REGENT, a leading manufacturer of all-electric seagliders. With plans to establish a base in Miami, Surf Air Mobility could offer passenger transport services for South Florida, including routes connecting Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, and the Caribbean Islands. In March 2024, Surf Air Mobility signed a memorandum of understanding with Auric Air Services Ltd., a Tanzania-based regional air operator serving East Africa. The agreement aims to upgrade up to 12 of Auric Air's Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft with Surf Air 's proprietary electrified powertrain technology upon certification. The company now has MOUs for approximately 13% of the Cessna Caravan market in Africa for potential upgrades to its electrified powertrains, once certified. This agreement follows Surf Air 's recent announcements of similar electrified powertrain MOUs with other major Cessna Caravan air operators in East Africa, such as Safarilink, Yellow Wings, and Z.Boskovic, as well as Azul Connecta in Brazil. Looking ahead, Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM) anticipates first-quarter 2024 revenue in the range of $28.5 million to $29.5 million. With efforts to balance growth with profitability, Surf Air Mobility is poised to lead the future of regional air mobility with its innovative approach and dedication to environmental stewardship.

Lana Del Rey makes Coachella Grand Entrance on Ryvid Anthem Electric Motorcycle

Ryvid, Inc

The arrival of Lana Del Rey by motorcycle at her recent Coachella performance went viral over the weekend. However, there’s more to the story than meets the eye… Once the artist and her production team decided to create a dramatic entrance by arriving on the back of a motorcycle, they had to navigate a number of obstacles. For starters, the Fire Marshal wouldn’t allow conventional combustion engines to be used on safety grounds. They also stipulated the bikes couldn’t be ridden at more than 5mph. In fact, they needed assurances that the motorcycles couldn’t exceed that speed! Considering the stipulations, the production team quickly turned to the California-built Ryvid Anthem Electric Motorcycle. Firstly, its 4.3 kWh Battery Pack would ensure the performers and audience didn’t succumb to exhaust fumes. Secondly, Ryvid engineers were able to limit the Anthem to exactly 5mph through its electronic controller – reduced from the 75mph+ available for unrestricted use. And thirdly, the lightweight 313 lb Anthem – with its high-performance brakes, suspension and tires – allowed the riders to control the bikes with their standing passengers. And the Anthem’s low center of gravity made balancing with the passenger far easier than almost any other motorcycle, electric or otherwise. Undoubtedly, the Ryvid Anthem was the perfect bike for Lana and her production team. Priced at only $8,995 and available in six eye-catching colors, it’s also perfect for commuting and urban exploration. Equipped with an integrated charger, 75-mile range, two riding modes, modern styling, and much more, the Anthem is available for delivery now. For more information on the Ryvid Anthem and the soon-to-be-announced second Ryvid model, visit ryvid.com. Please note, a motorcycle license is required to ride the Anthem. ABOUT RYVID Ryvid is a cutting-edge manufacturing corporation in the high-growth field of Electric Light Vehicles. Founded by enthusiasts, engineered by innovators, and designed by aerospace industry gearheads, Ryvid’s mission is to create more sustainable and enjoyable personal mobility. The company name was derived by the merging of Rhythm and Avid; elements of motion and emotion that define the experience of using our products. With its first product – the Anthem – Ryvid produced a revolutionary, lightweight, affordable electric motorcycle with a significantly lower carbon footprint than its competitors. With the same innovation to be applied to upcoming models and variants, Ryvid is poised to revolutionize urban commuting. Ryvid products are designed and assembled in the United States.

This strategic move facilitated a new partnership between Fulcrum and Terra, where Terra intends to acquire a 100% interest in Fulcrum's uranium projects. As part of the termination of the prior agreement with Fulcrum, Global Energy Metals will receive compensation equivalent to C$150,000 in shares in Terra upon the closing of the option agreement between Terra and Fulcrum. Additionally, Global Energy Metals will be granted a 0.5% Net Smelter Returns (NSR) royalty over the Saskatchewan-based project portfolio, which encompasses 596.71 square kilometers of highly prospective ground for uranium discovery. Smith highlighted that the project portfolio targets major NE-SW trending structures along strike from historic uranium mines and projects. This new agreement will bolster Global Energy Metals' existing project, royalty, and equity portfolio to now include uranium, further demonstrating the company's ability to monetize assets for the benefit of shareholders.
