2PAXfly: Lack of posts
Since there have been a smaller number of posts than usual to the blog this week, and last week, I thought I better explain.
I’m in Adelaide for the Festival, which means I’m out most nights.
If that was not bad enough, I have foolishly taken up some post-graduate study which is proving a little more time consuming than I expected. Term time during my first attempt at a degree was spent fashioning a broadcasting career, and then cramming for the end of term exams. Lectures and tutorials tended to be optional.
Things are very different today, what with remote learning, infuriating continuous assessment and attendance minimums! I have been glued to my iPad for readings, and to my laptop for Zoom seminars and tutorials.
However, I am sampling some of the newly opened hotels in Adelaide, so expect some reviews over the next few weeks.
The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.
It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.
This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.
Once the festival is over and I fall into an easy rhythm of study, things should get back to normal – well at least a close resemblance. That should be from next week.
What did you say?
