A Forum Series for Electric Propulsion of Aircraft will be held Tuesday, April 25, 2013, 8:00AM - 5:30 PM. Sponsored by ASTM Committee F37 on Light Sport Aircraft, the workshop will be held at the AERO Exhibition in Friedrichshafen Germany.
(b) Identification of product ranges where implementation of electric flight on a broader range is expected to happen most early
(c) Identification of gaps in the current product and technology certification basis
(d) Joint understanding of the priorities and logical sequence for the development of a meaningflul certification basis
(e) Joint understanding of the committees the be asked to commence with the development of a maningful certification basis
(f) Path forward and anticipated schedule
Looking at what is achieved in Light-Sport Aircraft regulation and considering what is about to happen with the restructuration of the certification basis for Part 23 General Aviation aircraft, the path anticipated at the last forum, to initiate Industry Standardization activity becomes more and more compelling. With today?s available setup of Standardization committees F37 Light-Sport Aircraft, F38 Unmanned Vehicles, F39 Aircraft Systems and F44 General Aviation, the family of committees that is hosting the second forum presents a natural, readily installed and powerful platform to support the activities.
Using the portfolio of real-world from industry doing meaningful first steps towards electric flight, a proper identification of standardization needs with the correct priority attached will significantly help the industry to take off in an efficient way, with adequate resources needs and in a very reasonable timeframe.

It is strongly suggested to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible. The AERO show typically sells out the hotels in Friedrichshafen months in advance. You can either go through the AERO show hotel reservations services or visit another hotel reservations website to make your reservations. Staying outside of town and driving to the Messe Friedrichshafen is also a feasible option.
The AERO 2013 website very thoroughly details many different ways to arrive into town and at the Messe Friedrichshafen. To view these options please visit: http://www.aero-expo.com/aero-en/travel-accommodation/travel.php
Committee F37 invites you to attend their future standards development meetings. There is no fee to attend these meetings, and membership in ASTM International is not required. For more information, visit the web page listed immediately above, and click on "Future Meetings".
