Transformative Vertical Flight Initiative

TVF Revolution

The VFS Electric VTOL efforts started in 2013 and soon led to the Society's "Transformative Vertical Flight" initiative (see below). The success of the eVTOL industry today is due in a small part to the efforts of VFS and its members over the years. 

Today, VFS has an Electric VTOL Technical Committee and has also created a bespoke website with news and the comprehensive World eVTOL Aircraft Directory, the Electric VTOL News — check it out and subscribe to our bi-weekly newsletter!

TVF Workshops and Working Groups

After nearly a year of discussions and planning, VFS held the first of its workshops on Transformative Vertical Flight (TVF) — initially with NASA, AIAA and SAE International — and built a community of aerospace professionals that included technical, regulatory and business elements, exploring the potential for new forms of air transportation systems with innovative propulsion systems. At the third annual workshop in June 2017, VFS created four TVF Working Groups, focused around mission applications, to enable volunteers to join and contribute in their areas of expertise.
