About 2023 H2-Aero Symposium

Leading Experts to Address Hydrogen for Aero Applications

Following up on Society’s successful programs on hydrogen electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, VFS is hosting our next major event, our 2nd Annual H2-Aero Symposium. This event is being planned and organized by the VFS H2-Aero Team to help accelerate development and scale both the hydrogen infrastructure as well as fuel cell aircraft.

The 2nd Annual H2-Aero Symposium is being held March 28-30, 2023, in Long Beach, California. Like the first meeting, this year’s symposium will feature two days of groundbreaking presentations with the latest cutting-edge developments by a who’s who of the hydrogen aviation and fuel cell community. Presentations on fuel cell aircraft technology, demonstrations and hydrogen hubs for airports will be held on March 28-29.

As a plus, there will be a unique tour for attendees of the Shell heavy duty vehicle hydrogen fueling facility at the Port of Long Beach on Thursday morning, March 30. Following this, SAE International will hold an all-day meeting of its new AE-5CH Hydrogen Airport Taskgroup — conference attendees and members are all welcome to attend. The taskgroup’s goal is to work between the aircraft and hydrogen industries towards standardization of hydrogen related to the whole value chain at the airport.
