Join a Transformative Vertical Flight Roadmap Working Group today.

Background:  Over the past four years a community of aerospace professionals that includes technical, regulatory, and business elements have been exploring the potential for new forms of air transportation systems.  Their focus has been on systems that embody combinations of on-demand, distributed electric propulsion, and vertiport capabilities. This community has been pursuing their interest through a series of Transformative Vertical Flight (TVF) workshops and working groups.  < Read More. >

Objective:  The objective of the Working Groups is to establish a formal means of continually refining current versions of the Transformative Vertical Flight Roadmap to create an increasingly compelling argument for pursuing this capability. < Read More. >
