Description

Electric flight is increasingly seen as a necessary next step in aviation, but despite the announcement of hundreds of projects, it remains very much in its infancy. Dr Gratton will describe the technical hopes and challenges, and the few projects he thinks are going to succeed. By the time of the lecture, he hopes to have test flown several electric aircraft himself, and will also be describing the challenges behind operating electric aircraft from personal experience.

Joint RAeS/IMechE lecture. Intending to run in-person, but Microsoft Teams will be a back-up (please email the contact person for online access). All welcome. Please book to help us estimate expected attendance. The event is free, although the RAeS suggest a voluntary donation of £3, payable on the day, to support their future events.
