This gathering of top powered-lift propulsion experts is a unique opportunity for those wanting to learn the latest advances in the challenging regime of vertical and/or short take-off and landing (V/STOL) flight, and to learn about the latest powered lift-related systems in closer detail. Paper submissions should highlight current research, ongoing efforts, past successes, and existing or expected future challenges in fielding new technologies from the operator perspective for commercial, military, and other aerospace system applications including electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
