Boost knowledge, overcome engineering challenges, and make connections with fellow professionals developing the next generation of electric aircraft technology

More Electric Aircraft (MEA) applications demand high reliability, high availability, and high power density. They do this while also aiming to reduce weight, complexity, fuel consumption, operational costs, and environmental impact. New electric driven systems are being developed to meet these requirements and provide significant technical and economic improvements over conventional mechanical, hydraulic, or pneumatic systems.

This online event will bring together stakeholders along the whole supply chain to discuss the fast-paced developments for electric and hybrid aircraft architectures, and systems and components. It also takes on related technological challenges and opportunities right up to commercial viability, with the overall goal to support the industry on next generation aircraft design that features improved fuel efficiency and reduced environmental impact.
