The Royal Aeronautical Society's President's Summit is our flagship annual event on a key topic in aerospace, chosen by the Society's President. The 2023 summit, hosted by the 2023-24 President of the RAeS Kerissa Khan MRAeS, focuses on the theme of 'Future of Flight' and explores the potential for Advanced Air Mobility Technologies to transform urban, rural and regional transport as we know it. OverviewDuring this summit, we'll be welcoming a wide range of senior decision-makers across the transport ecosystem - including aircraft manufacturers, supply chain companies, investors, regulators, government and local authority representatives - who will review the progress of flight technologies, from lightweight fuel cells to aircraft autonomy, and how these platforms are being applied to pioneering flight trials today. Interactive panel discussions will debate the reliability, efficiency and applicability of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft designs, and predict the real world business models for AAM operations. The discussions will mirror the major considerations for the community on how revolutionary aerospace engineering will be rolled out to commercial-scale, including establishing infrastructure and vertiport terminals. Whilst a large proportion of day one will be dedicated to VTOLs in the urban and rural environments, day two moves into regional aviation and sustainable long-haul aviation. The agenda balances the major innovation trends within aviation today, covering both the development of hybrid electric propulsion and lighter-than-air vehicles, as well as the immediate deployment of sustainable aviation fuels in the existing aviation industry. Why attend?The Future of Flight Summit is a unique opportunity to network with the entire ecosystem of advanced air mobility stakeholders - original equipment manufacturers, supply chain, regulators, investors, government authorities - and be part of the discussion on revolutionary engineering for the air transport of the future, right in the centre of London. Who should attend?Both RAeS Members and non-members are welcome to attend this Summit. Attendance is in person only at RAeS HQ, No.4 Hamilton Place, London. Delegate fees include conference attendance, refreshments and lunch.     URL:Brochure:   Date and Time: On Wed, 20 Sep 2023 08:45 - Thu, 21 Sep 2023 18:30   Venue details: Royal Aeronautical Society, 4 Hamilton Place, London, England, W1J 7BQ, United Kingdom   Prices:RAeS Member: GBP 263.00,RAeS Non Member: GBP 342.00,RAeS Corporate Partner: GBP 289.00,RAeS Student Apprentice/Affiliate Member: GBP 63.00   Speakers: Kerissa Khan - President, Royal Aeronautical Society and Future Flight Challenge Innovation Leader, UK Research and Innovation , Bonny Simi - Head of Air Operations and People, Joby Aviation , Michael Cervenka - CTO, Vertical Aerospace , Brandon Robinson - CEO, Horizon Aircraft , Juliana Kiraly - Head of Business Development - Europe, Eve Air Mobility , Prof. Dame Helen Atkinson - Pro-Vice Chancellor, School of Aerospace, Transport Systems and Manufacturing, Cranfield University , Professor Fern Elsdon-Baker - Future Flight Social Science Research Director, University of Birmingham , Alex Ivanenko - GM, Rotorcraft and New Segments, ZeroAvia, ex.
