Chip Yates of Flight of the Century, who set an unofficial speed record last year in an electric-powered Long-EZ, is now working on a mid-air recharging system for the aircraft, which he plans to test prior to appearing at EAA AirVenture later this summer. He spoke with AVweb's Mary Grady about his plans at the CAFE Electric Airplane Symposium in Santa Rosa, California on Friday.
