The CAFE Foundation’s 12th Annual Electric Aircraft Symposium (EAS) was held on the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh campus on July 21-22 prior to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018. The theme was “The Future of Flight: Electric Aviation Technologies and Opportunities.”

Since many of the talks were relevant to eVTOL (as well as eCTOL), the presentations were video recorded by the Vertical Flight Society and are available on the VFS YouTube channel. Direct links are as follows:
