Thursday March 28, 2019 & Friday March 29, 2019
at the Filderhalle right next to Stuttgart Airport
► REGISTER ONLINE NOW
The E2Flight Symposium was held at the Stuttgart Airport in 2015 for the first time. The feedback was excellent and due to the popular demand we will be holding the 4th edition of this symposium.
This year we will have a close look at new projects and we will discuss the progress of relevant aspects of electric flight.
In 2016, the DLR and the University of Stuttgart examined the challenges and opportunities presented by electric propulsion in aircraft.
2017 the focus was on new aspects of electric flight like the feasibility as well as the scientific aspects of this new and promising technology.
We are pleased to invite you to join us for the 4th Symposium on the 28th and 29th of March 2019.
Overall concepts for electric flight
Energy and systems
Batteries, fuel cells, refueling, charging, and required infrastructure
