For those wishing you’d acted sooner, early bird registration for the 2018 Sustainable Aviation Symposium has been extended until April 6. You can still sign up for an opportunity to hear and see the best in cutting-edge presentations by experts in aerodynamics, electric power systems, and future flight controls at the urban and national levels.
We’ve added speakers since you last looked. Ed Reyes, CEO of Sabrewing Aircraft Company, is ready to share his leadership experience on the Global Hawk project, and how Sabrewing is building a regional unmanned cargo aircraft that can lift 2 metric tons. Sabrewing is also the only American team chosen to participate in the Pacific Drone Challenge™ to fly from Japan to the Silicon Valley in 2019.
Dr. Daniel Sperling, Professor and Founding Director of the Institute of Transportation Studies – UC Davis, and part of the 2007 Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change team, will share insights included in his new book, Three Revolutions, Steering Automated, Shared, and Electric Vehicles to a Better Future.
Dana Lodico, director of Rocky Mountain regional operations and a senior consultant at Illingworth & Rodkin, Inc.. will explain how to make tires and runways quieter, a necessary feature for pocket airparks and all future airports.
Your Sustainable Skies editor will be on hand to show how inexpensively we might achieve electric flight. He has a start on a much-delayed project that might make a sub-$5,000 electric airplane a reality. He’ll share projects worldwide that show enormous amounts of creativity and how the commodification of model aircraft and other components will bring electric flight to homebuilt aviation.
This will be a world-class gathering. You have until April 6 to attend for the Early Bird price of $499. Register here for the Symposium and the Friday Evening theme dinners. For accommodations at the beautiful Pullman Hotel San Francisco Bay, where the Symposium takes place, call (650) 598-9000 and mention “Sustainable Aviation Symposium” when booking.
