The two-day event will cover all aspects of aerospace activity, from commercial aviation to military applications, its purpose being to highlight the ever-growing amount of research into the increased electrification of aircraft and the possibilities and challenges that brings.
Leading experts from around the world will present their views and their current findings, leading to a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of aviation engineers.
There is a great deal to discuss. There is enormous pressure on all mankind to reduce dependence on natural resources, and airlines are demanding ever more fuel-efficient aircraft to save costs. Furthermore, hybrid aircraft could see near-silent commercial and military aviation activity, increasing passenger comfort or stealth-like capability. And quieter aircraft can also operate over more territories, more of the time, leading to more air slots and less resistance to additional runways or night-time flights. It is little wonder that every major aircraft manufacturer is now investing more and more into developing electric aerospace propulsion technologies. Indeed, it is inevitable that we will see ever more start-up companies creating such innovative technologies, just as we have seen in the automotive and maritime industries.
The Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium is being held in the conference rooms located in Conference Centre East of the Koelnmesse, Germany.
