25–29 June 2018
Hyatt Regency Atlanta, Atlanta, Georgia

Transformational Electric Flight Workshop and Expo


The Transformational Electric Flight Workshop & Expo brings together speakers and attendees from industry, government and academia worldwide to explore the exciting developments in the aeronautics field occurring because of electric propulsion.

From small unmanned aircraft to personal transportation to high-altitude long endurance unmanned aircraft to commercial transports, electric propulsion technologies are opening up new missions and beginning to revolutionize traditional missions. Engage with many of the pioneers in the field, make new connections, hear the latest from regulators and researchers, and learn how electric propulsion may impact your job and your everyday life. Experts from around the world will talk about the newest technologies in propulsion, airframe design and batteries, and explore the intersection of information integration, deep learning and aviation.
