More than 40 of the world’s leading electric aircraft developers and technology experts will be speaking at the 17th Annual Electric Aircraft Symposium (EAS), hosted by the Vertical Flight Society (VFS). The event will be held online and in person in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, on July 22-23, 2023.

EAS is the world’s longest-running electric aviation technology meeting, organized by industry and government leaders of advanced air mobility (AAM) to provide updates to the community and the public. A special feature this year is a panel organized to support the US government’s AAM Interagency Working Group. The panel will include speakers from the US Department of Transportation (DOT), NASA, and the US Air Force AFWERX unit.

Other participating companies and organizations this year include AeroTEC, Archer, Beta Technologies, Community Air Mobility Initiative (CAMI), Diamond Aircraft, Hydroplane, Joby Aviation, Jetson Aero, Lilium, Limosa, LuftCar, Opener, Overair, SkyDrive, Textron eAviation, Wisk, Whisper Aero, ZeroAvia, and ZEVA.

EAS is hosted by VFS, a leading educational non-profit organization working on electric aircraft technology development. The focus of EAS is on technological advancements and addressing major issues like certification and infrastructure for the industry as a whole.

“The electric aircraft industry is gaining momentum with investments topping $10B in the past five years. EAS provides an opportunity to get comprehensive updates on the state of the industry and hear from top AAM thought leaders,” said VFS Executive Director Angelo Collins.

The cost of the two-day symposium ranges from $150 for virtual participants to $245 for in-person attendees. There is also a special virtual-only option for VFS student members of only $25. Details on the agenda, registration, and sponsorships are available at the EAS website.
