Dean Sigler

Editor-in-Chief, SustainableSkies.org


Dean has 34 years’ experience as a technical writer working for electronics and engineering firms. He documented systems and processes for “wafer fabs,” large-scale manufacturing plants that turn silicon wafers into computer chips. His design and construction guides for one leader in the field led to the construction of over 15 fabrication facilities worldwide. The range of skills he developed in studying the functional and operational characteristics of these plants led to his writing and presenting materials on electric aircraft.

Dean is the Editor-in-Chief of Sustainable Skies, the world’s best resource for news on the Electric and Sustainable Flight movement. Additionally he has served as blog writer for the CAFE Foundation for the last six years, to presentations at seven electric aircraft symposia, and to over 25 articles under the “Alternative Energies” heading in Kitplanes magazine. He writes for SustainableSkies.org and is one of the foremost authorities on the many emerging trends and technologies in the electric aircraft movement. He is building his own electric powered aircraft in his spare time.
