  CAFE: Comparative Aircraft Flight Efficiency

EAS 2019 Speakers (presentation videos coming soon!)

CAFE Foundation and Vertical Flight Society Co-Hosted the Event
Just Prior to EAA AirVenture

July 10, 2019 Press Release:
13th Annual Electric Aircraft Symposium Lands in Oshkosh

Press Release Excerpts:

"The Symposium provides an opportunity to get a comprehensive brief on the state of the industry and meet the top leaders before EAA AirVenture begins," said Yolanka Wulff, Executive Director of the non-profit CAFE Foundation. "In 2007, CAFE Foundation organized the world's first Electric Aircraft Symposium to address emerging interest in electric propulsion, along with energy and climate issues. These meetings helped create the industry you see today."

"Advances in technology have initiated what we call 'The Electric VTOL Revolution,'" said Mike Hirschberg, Executive Director of the Vertical Flight Society. "Today, we are seeing major international aerospace companies, Silicon Valley tech companies and other startups developing eVTOL aircraft, including Uber's ambitious Elevate program to operate thousands of eVTOL air taxis (developed by VFS members) for Urban Air Mobility (UAM) applications. Electric aviation has the potential to transform society."
