At least an engine will be ready for when batteries are smaller. If indeed batteries are the main source of energy by then. In that industry safety tests take years. The nice thing about fuel it doesn't change much with time, but not battery technology.

Don't forget not all passengers are adults, and not all turn up
True, although on a business "jet" it's mostly going to be adults most of the time.

I like the idea of it. I do wonder if it'll find many companies taking it on for routes they cover. 400nm isn't a huge range and within existing helicopter coverage.
fuel consumed per mile doesn't get much worse than helicopters.

True, but the ranges are comparable which was what I was getting at.
