Now in its fourth year, the Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium has firmly established itself as the leading event for high-level aerospace engineers, leading research academics and heads of electrical system design and engineering to discuss, debate and analyse the development of hybrid-electric aircraft and even the possibility of pure electric-only commercial flight.
The two-day event will cover all aspects of aerospace activity, from general aviation and smaller regional aircraft, to larger commercial airliners, its purpose being to highlight the fast-paced development of hybrid propulsion and electrical subsystem architecture or MEA and to discuss the vast 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 current findings, providing a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and network with this pioneering community of aviation engineers.
There is a great deal to discuss. With the enormous pressure on all mankind to reduce dependence on natural resources, airlines are demanding ever more fuel-efficient aircraft to save costs. Furthermore, hybrid-electric aircraft could see near-silent commercial aviation activity, increasing passenger comfort and flight frequency. A quieter aircraft can 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 heavily in the development of 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.
