Following his well received presentation at the 2017 MEA conference in Seattle entitled Span Efficiency For Electric Airplanes: the Size and Speed Solution, Synergy Aircraft founder John McGinnis was invited to return and present again, this time as conference Chairman. However, a busy family schedule ahead of his presentation at the August 20-23, 2018 event led to his politely declining the Chairman’s role last spring.
When new conference organizers contacted him again at the end of July, enough had transpired to allow a change of heart. “This is a valuable conference and workshop,” he said, “a lot of serious people doing serious work. It was an honor to present there last year and a privilege to be asked to assist in an expanded capacity this year,” McGinnis said. His 2018 presentation is entitled “Acknowledging Weight Per Wingspan: A Synergistic Catalyst Toward More Electric Aircraft.” IQPC_More Electric Aircraft Agenda
