International Powered Lift Conference
« on: October 19, 2018, 03:36:05 am »
I will be giving a presentation looking at the design of ASTOVL projects over 40 years, and how some of the most important work got forgotten during the JSF programme.

It will also look at how future eVTOL air taxis (Uber and the like) may be able to learn from this.

Not a cheap event, but ASTOVL seldom is! If it is your thing though, this is the event.
