The 2009 CAFE Foundation
Electric Aircraft Symposium

Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, California
Friday, April 24, 2009


The CAFE Foundation's 3rd Annual Electric Aircraft Symposium (EAS III) saw presenters from NASA, Stanford, University of Stuttgart and other leaders of the rapidly growing electric aircraft movement. Sponsored by Foundation Capital, the April 24, 2009 meeting assembled an outstanding faculty at the Hiller Aviation Museum for a stimulating meeting that culminated with a networking banquet.

The 2009 event again doubled in size and was well-attended by members of the science and technology media. The program included CAFE and NASA's announcement of tentative plans for the CAFE Green Flight Challenge, a flight competition for mainly electric aircraft. In all, the EAS III continued to make the dream of a practical electric aircraft look a lot closer than most thought.
