Nick had spent about 10 minutes extoling the benefits of the installing an electric CRPS in light aircraft to a visitor and was in the process of explaining what the retired chief engineer of Airbus had once said to him about the electric CRPS concept – “Nick have you any idea of the impact of electric propulsion on the design of future aircraft? -  it will be greater than the invention of the jet engine!” when the visitor said “I think I should introduce myself  – my name is Ian Whittle” – my father was Frank Whittle”! A lengthy discussion followed.
