6th Annual Electric VTOL Symposium a Huge Success!

The Vertical Flight Society's 6th Annual Electric VTOL Symposium was held on Jan. 29-31 as part of the 8th Biennial Autonomous VTOL Technical Meeting, in Mesa, Arizona. This sold-out event had more than 375 attendees — with a total of 115 short course registrations — and was another watershed event in supporting the development of electric VTOL and urban air mobility. 

The technical meeting featured more than 40 technical paper presentations related to manned and unmanned autonomous VTOL aircraft, while the symposium featured some 60 invited presentations, panel sessions and discussions on electric and hybrid-electric VTOL aircraft.

All attendees have been sent a link to download PDFs of the technical papers and the invited presentations. (Check the email address that you used to register for the event.)

If you missed this blockbuster event, you can download the invited presentations. VFS members can log in and download all of the presentations in the eVTOL Symposium at no charge! In addition, the Autonomous VTOL technical papers are available for purchase from the Vertical Flight Library.

The eVTOL Symposium and the short courses on eVTOL Design and eVTOL Aeromechanics and Acoustics Prediction Software were video-recorded. These will be available in the next 2-3 weeks.
