    Electric Airplanes- Future or Fiction?

    Panel discussion

    May 11, 2017, 6-8 PM

    ____________________

     

    Electric and hybrid-electric propulsion research for aircraft is accelerating. Our upcoming panel will tackle the larger question: What will this research enable? There are many future discoveries that can be foreseen such as vertical take-off, urban transport, zero-emissions regional travel and energy-efficient airliners. However, electric aircraft may also prove to be a dead-end for aviation. Join us in the discussion.
