Programma: 

Het ecosysteem van het elektrisch vliegtuig.

Elektrisch vliegen vraagt meer dan een vliegtuig met een elektromotor en batterij of brandstofcel. Als we ook passagiers en vracht willen vervoeren moet het luchtvaartsysteem hierop ingericht zijn. Tijdens de gastles bespreken we het ecosysteem waar het elektrische vliegtuig zich in zal bewegen. De kernvraag voor de les is: wat betekent elektrisch vliegen voor de inrichting van de luchthaven, wet- en regelgeving, luchtruim, MRO, opleiding professionals, standaardisering en certificering en internationale afstemming.  Dit op basis van onderzoek bij DEAC (Dutch Electric Aviation Centre) op Teuge Airport. In de les worden deze vraagstukken belicht en vervolgens is veel ruimte voor vragen en discussie.
