Abstract Deadline Extended for
6th Annual Electric VTOL Symposium

Are you working on leading-edge autonomous or electric VTOL technology? The Vertical Flight Society's 6th Annual Electric VTOL Symposium will be held on Jan. 29-31 as part of the 8th Biennial Autonomous VTOL Technical Meeting, in Mesa, Arizona. The world conference will feature technical paper presentations related to manned and unmanned autonomous VTOL aircraft, while the Symposium will feature invited presentations, panel sessions and discussions on electric and hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft.

Technical paper abstracts are due on Monday, Oct. 1 — be part of this important event!

This is the world’s longest running symposium on eVTOL technology. It’s a unique opportunity for designers, developers, innovators, investors, regulators, infrastructure providers, end users, media and key influencers to share knowledge and work towards realizing the eVTOL revolution. 

Meeting registration and hotel reservations are now open: Join speakers from industry, academia and government agencies to expand your understanding of the progress and challenges of electric and hybrid electric VTOL.

Two new eVTOL Short Courses will be offered in conjunction with the event:

Sponsorship and exhibit opportunities are available for organizations to highlight their work in autonomy and electric VTOL. 

Headlines: Education:

The Vertical Flight Society participated in two e-airplane symposia earlier this year that were video recorded and now are available on YouTube.

The CAFE Foundation's 12th Annual Electric Aircraft Symposium (EAS) was held on July 21-22 prior to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018. The theme was "The Future of Flight: Electric Aviation Technologies and Opportunities." Since many of the talks were relevant to eVTOL (as well as eCTOL), the presentations were video recorded by the Vertical Flight Society and are available on the VFS YouTube channel. 19 videos totaling 10 hours are now available for public viewing. Check them out!

In addition, the Vertical Flight Society also presented at the Sustainable Aviation Symposium (SAS) on May 10-11. The videos of these eVTOL and eCTOL presentations are also now available.
