The Electric VTOL News™ highlights the incredible promise and progress of all-electric and hybrid-electric powered vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, primarily focused on non-helicopter VTOL aircraft large enough to carry passengers without conventional helicopter flight controls (though eHelos and eGyros are also included). Electric propulsion throws open the VTOL aircraft design space by harnessing concepts such as distributed electric propulsion (DEP) as well as facilitating new approaches to wingborne VTOL.
One of our most widely-used resources is the World eVTOL Aircraft Directory with more than 485 eVTOL aircraftlisted to date — and new aircraft added as soon as they are unveiled!
We also have 200+ hoursof videopresentations on eVTOL aircraft and technology in our video library, including several Electric VTOL Short Courses, taught by leading eVTOL technology experts. And check out our upcoming events and resources from past events.
Sign up for The Electric VTOL™ eNewsletter to get regular updates on progress in Electric VTOL, resources and important upcoming events. You can also check out our past issues. It's the longest-serving and most comprehensive free newsletter on electric vertical flight and adjacent technologies.
The VFS Transformative Vertical Flight 2022 event will be held Jan. 24-27, 2022 in San Jose, California, and includes the Aeromechanics for Advanced Vertical Flight Technical Meeting and the 9th Annual Electric VTOL Symposium.
78th Annual Forum & Technology Display will take place May 10-12, 2022! This is the world's largest and longest-running VTOL technical conference, with dozens of papers and presentations focused on electric VTOL.
Recent Vertical Flight Society Events:
The 15th Electric Aircraft Symposium, held July 20-22, organized by the CAFE Foundation and the Vertical Flight Society, is the world's longest-running event that covers eVTOL, eCTOL and eSTOL aircraft. You can still watch the first day free or purchase access to videos of all 60 speakers at www.vtol.org/videos
VFS taught two short courses in June that are now available for purchase as video on demand for $325 each:
76th Annual Forum & Technology Display was Oct. 5-8, 2020. You can still gain access to videos of 250 presentations and all of the technical papers in the Forum 76 proceedings. Check it out!
The Electric VTOL News™ is published by the Vertical Flight Society, the world’s longest-serving and largest VTOL technical organization. This website was started in April 2017, and is the first and foremost resource for eVTOL news and information in the world.
