Sky WindPower's Flying Electric Generators

The video shows the concept, benefits and progress of developing flying electric generators to convert the persistent and abundant power in high altitude winds (aka the jet stream) into electricity. It includes interviewers with inventors Dr. Bryan Roberts, who originally conceived the idea, David Shepard, who convinced Dr. Roberts to jointly form Sky WindPower, and the engineers who are building and testing prototypes today. The video shows an actual runway tow test where electricity was produced for the first time from a sub-scale prototype. That prototype has since flown, but that's a subject for a future video.
