I am honored and excited to present at this year’s Vertical Flight Society Annual Forum 76, virtually! The event and its tradition of sharing the latest research and advancement in vertical flight are too important to pass up, notwithstanding what is happening this year. By taking part and contributing to the Forum, we are moving the industry forward.
This year is no different. “… the Annual Forum is always the place where everyone goes to meet experts and newcomers alike in industry, academia and government from around the world,” says Mike Hirschberg, Executive Director of the Vertical Flight Society. We are seeing quite a few papers in the area related to Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL), including my paper titled “A Life-Cycle Economic Study of eVTOL Air Taxi Service in the US Northeast Region.” This paper results from a collaboration between my friends and colleagues, Dr. Simon Briceno (Jaunt Air Mobility), and Dr. Cedric Justin (Georgia Institute of Technology). I hope to see you all Zoomed in!
