Sowing the seeds of tomorrow's aircraft

The future of flying will be organically grown, with seats made from plants and fuel made from oils from seeds or algae. There will be "no more non-renewable materials, like metal or plastic" in the cabin of tomorrow's aircraft. Flying will be the answer to scarce resources on the ground; by travelling through the air rather than by road or rail, the ground can be "left for farming and preserving biodiversity". Meanwhile, in cities "vertical take-off will be a way of saving space".
