Chip Yates Going for New E-Plane Speed Record of 230 MPH
From a small passenger airplane that took off from Mather Airport on Thursday morning, a world record-breaking pilot surveyed the terrain, making plans to once again break the speed record for an electric airplane.
But this time, instead of zipping over the Mojave Desert, Chip Yates will attempt to break the record in view of an audience at the California Capital Airshow in October.
Yates, founder and CEO of Flight of the Century Inc., will truck his electric airplane to Mather Airport for the show, where he will attempt to fly it faster than 202 mph - his previous record speed. This time, he's aiming for 230 mph.
