VISION & GOALS

Conquering the sky through e-mobility and zero emissions – this is the vision of aeronautics research at German Aerospace Center.

Radical improvements have to be made to realize the vision of carbon free aircraft technology and electric flights, as well as Concept studies for the construction of airplanes, energy systems and combustion engines, aspects of certifications and systems integration: E²Flight® conference covers all these aspects on the way to clean global aviation.

Since 2015 we support this idea by holding the E²Flight® conference in Stuttgart. Particularly contributions made by speakers from industry and scientists of various disciplines, encourage the exchange of knowledge and views.

Engineers, researchers from universities as well as research centers, research groups and ministries with a connection or interest in electric powered aircraft are the target audience of the symposium.
