If you weren’t excited about Oshkosh before, you should be now... as it will likely be the first time for many of the aviation world to see a flying car actually fly! Terrafugia will be returning to EAA AirVenture in Oskhosh, WI, this July 29th through August 4th. Terrafugia’s Transition will be making its first airshow appearance as part of the "World's Greatest Aviation Celebration."
Greenwing International (GWI) has been announced as the producer of the eSpyder and e430 Yuneec-powered electric aircraft. Yuneec International, which first displayed its electric powered aircraft at AirVenture 2009, has been advancing its electric propulsion technologies ever since. GreenWing International will be bringing several eSpyder aircraft to AirVenture 2013 for ground and flight display. NASA has made history once again as a NASA advanced ion propulsion engine has successfully operated for more than 48,000 hours, or 5 and a half years, making it the longest test duration of any type of space propulsion system demonstration project ever.
