Scott Burgess, President of Eco-Aviation Foundation International, will give a brief introduction to the Foundation and its mission.

George Bye, CEO and Founder of Bye Aerospace. Bye Aerospace is on track to have the first all-electric airplane to be certified in FAA history! Their “eFlyer” family of aircraft, in addition to an advanced, medium-altitude, long-endurance solar-electric airplane called “Solesa,” position Bye Aerospace as a strong leader in the eco aviation market.

Kevin Noertker, CEO and Co-Founder of Ampaire. Los Angeles-based Ampaire is making flying more accessible to more people from more airports by developing electric aircraft that are less costly, safe, clean, and quiet. Los Angeles-based startup Ampaire retrofitted a Cessna 337 aircraft with an electric power-train, with the expectation of full commercial certification by 2021. The hybrid-electric aircraft took to the skies at Camarillo Airport, and it became the largest aircraft using electric propulsion to have ever flown. Ampaire, leading the charge!
