About This Event

My presentation will be focused on what we can do "right now" with existing technologies. We don't need fully autonomous flying cars to realize the benefits that Electric Aviation will bring. We don't need to wait further decades. We can have fun, safe, hi-performance Electric Aircraft right now, as evidenced by my E-Gull and similar aircraft. All that's really missing is the charging infrastructure. I think the most "democratic" open network we can provide is a simple NEMA 14-50 outlet. This can provide nearly 10kW of charging power to any form of charger that the user wishes to connect. This amount, 10 kW, should be enough to charge ultralights and LSA type aircraft in just a couple hours and should really spark and enable this new frontier.
