The Electric VTOL Revolution

This presentation will discuss the promise and progress of electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft​. More than 65 eVTOL concepts are being studied around the world, with several advanced prototypes already conducting impressive passenger-carrying flights. Companies like Uber, Airbus, Bell, Joby and Kitty Hawk are competing to develop the hardware, software and regulatory framework to provide all-electric intra-city air shuttle services at very low cost and low noises, with zero tailpipe emissions within the next 5-10 years.
