• The X-57 Maxwell and Electric Propulsion Tech Talk with Vince Schultz, NASA Langley

    The X-57 Maxwell, NASA’s first piloted experimental aircraft in decades, is a pathfinder for developing standards for electric propulsion, and is pioneering advances in Distributed Electric Propulsion that will herald innovations for greatly expanded air mobility. NASA is laying the foundations for electric aircraft, working to identify approaches to certification for these revolutionary vehicles and standards to safely operate these new aircraft in airspace systems around the world. This talk will summarize achievements to date, lessons learned along the way, and projected impacts for the future NAS from these increased levels of operations and the opening of whole new markets for transportation.
