The Vertical Flight Society will end their “Vertical Flight Symposium” at the Hiller Aviation Museum and are inviting the general public to come out and see the future of air transportation.
One of the most promising pursuits in electrical aviation is electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. These eVTOL aircraft are leading the way and may open up air travel to individuals in exciting new ways. A marketable electric eVTOL could change the entire aviation industry as it exists today.
The potential for air taxi services and other quick, convenient commercial transportation are undeniable.
Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) is not a new concept in aviation. While we are all familiar with helicopters, other aircraft, usually developed for military uses, such as the V-22 Osprey and the F35B fighter jet can both take off and land vertically. VTOL’s use has been relatively limited in the past, however, companies are looking to capitalize on its convenience and speed.
