The Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation is partnering with the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) to present a two-hour Innovation Forum at the 2019 AIAA Science and Technology Forum and Exposition. Representatives from companies and organizations such as NASA, Aerion, Aurora Flight Services and GoFly will give short presentations on concepts including unmanned air traffic management, commercial supersonic flight, high-performance electric aircraft and personal flying devices.

“The Lindbergh Innovation Forum is a platform to showcase innovation in aviation, from a name that is synonymous with aviation transformation,” said Executive Director of the Lindbergh Foundation Arvind Iyer. “We are honored to partner with AIAA to feature some truly breakthrough work at the 2019 AIAA SciTech Forum.” The first Lindbergh Innovation Forum was held at AirVenture 2018.

The Innovation Forum at AIAA SciTech will be moderated by Erik Lindbergh, president of VerdeGo Aero and grandson of famed aviator Charles Lindbergh. It will take place on Jan. 9, 2019, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego, California. The forum is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. PST and will be streamed online on the Lindbergh Foundation website. The recording will also be archived on the site for later viewing.
