NBAA TV: Future Technologies Take Center Stage at NBAA-BACE

Attendees at the 2018 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) saw a glimpse into the future of business aviation through exhibits and education sessions. At the Day 2 Keynote, Bertrand Piccard, chairman of Solar Impulse Project, talked about his journey around the world in a solar-powered aircraft and how these technologies could be used in business aviation. Exhibitors Terrafugia and Embraer X shared their vision of urban mobility with concepts for fully electric, vertical-takeoff and landing aircraft. Education sessions presented attendees with information about innovative software, blockchain, crypto currency and other forward-looking topics. View the video.

NBAA-BACE Day 2 Keynote Honors the Past, Looks to the Future

The Day 2 Keynote session at NBAA-BACE was a celebration of aviation’s past and a look toward the future. The event began with recognition of NBAA’s inaugural class of the Business Aviation Top 40 Under 40. NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen then honored aviation’s past in presenting NBAA’s Meritorious Service to Aviation Award to the Women Airforce Service Pilots for their service to the country during World War II. Bertrand Piccard, who circumnavigated the globe in the Solar Impulse without a drop of fuel, told attendees that innovation comes when you throw away your old assumptions. Finally, political titans Paul Begala and Matt Schlapp gave an overview of the current campaign environment, in the run-up to the 2018 midterm elections. Read more about the Day 2 Keynote.

NBAA-BACE Panel Imagines the Future of Pilotless VTOL Urban Transport

Anyone who’s ever dreamed of traveling above congested city streets may soon have their dreams realized, and possibly sooner than they may think. Electrically powered, pilotless, vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft offer the potential to radically change urban transportation, and a standing-room-only session at NBAA-BACE took a closer look at this promising technology. One of the most significant revelations to come from the Business Aviation Insider magazine-hosted session, “Imagining the Future of Pilotless VTOL Aircraft,” is that the biggest challenge isn’t necessarily creating pilotless VTOL vehicles, but creating an infrastructure in which those aircraft will operate. Read more about VTOL.
