NASA will hold a media teleconference to discuss its X-57 Maxwell all-electric aircraft project at 12 p.m. EDT on Friday, June 23.
Audio of the call will stream live on the agency’s website.
The goal of the X-57 project is to share the knowledge NASA has gained through development of the aircraft’s electric propulsion-focused design and airworthiness process with regulators. This information will advance certification approaches for electric propulsion in emerging electric aircraft markets.
Scheduled participants in the call will include:
- Bradley C. Flick, director, NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California
- Kate McMurtry, deputy director for the Integrated Aviation Systems Program, NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate
- Vincent Schultz, X-57 deputy project manager, NASA Armstrong
- Sean Clarke, X-57 principal investigator, NASA Armstrong
Media interested in participating in the teleconference should RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
NASA’s goal of developing knowledge through the X-57 project is part of the agency’s commitment to supporting the U.S. climate goal of achieving net-zero aviation greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
