Electric Aircraft Research & Advocacy

In 2007 CAFE organized the First-Ever Electric Aircraft Symposium (EAS) in San Francisco. Burgeoning interest and technologic advances in electric propulsion, along with energy and climate issues, have spurred the EAS to double in size each year. Each year, its outstanding faculty from industry, NASA and academia have presented a comprehensive program for advancing electric flight. EAS IV is scheduled for April 23, 2010 in Sonoma County, and is already slated to include the latest in e-Flight breakthroughs.

The 2011 CAFE Green Flight Challenge will bring forth the actual implementation of EAS ideas into real personal aircraft. Several sophisticated teams are now preparing to compete with electric powered and hybrid aircraft.
