The Electric VTOL News™ highlights the incredible promise and progress of all-electric and hybrid-electric powered vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, primarily focused on non-helicopter VTOL aircraft large enough to carry passengers without conventional helicopter flight controls (though eRotorcraft are also included). Electric propulsion throws open the VTOL aircraft design space by harnessing concepts such as distributed electric propulsion (DEP) as well as facilitating new approaches to wingborne VTOL.
One of our most widely-used resources is the World eVTOL Aircraft Directory, with 375+ eVTOL aircraftlisted to date — and new aircraft added as soon as they are unveiled!
We also have 200+ hoursof videopresentations on eVTOL aircraft and technology in our video library, including several Electric VTOL Short Courses, taught by leading eVTOL technology experts. And check out our upcoming events and resources from past events.

77th Annual Forum & Technology Display will take place May 11-13, 2021! This is the world's largest and longest-running VTOL technical conference, with dozens of papers and presentations focused on electric VTOL. The event is planned for in person in West Palm Beach, Florida, but may be held virtually or hybrid if necessary due to COVID-19.
Note: if you missed our fully-virtual 76th Annual Forum & Technology Display, it was an incredible event! You can still register and access 250 presentations and all of the technical papers in the Forum 76 proceedings. Check it out!
The Electric VTOL News™ is published by the Vertical Flight Society, the world’s longest-serving and largest VTOL technical organization. This website was started in April 2017, and is the first and foremost resource for eVTOL news and information in the world.
