When

Tuesday 9 April from 8pm to 9pm

We’re on the cusp of the next wave in aviation.

Long-range and emissions free, air taxis will be transporting patients, passengers and cargo in the coming years. Join Siobhan Lyndon and Andrew Moore, the inventors of electric vertical take off and landing aircraft Vertiia, as they reveal the future of zero-emission flying.

Despite frustrations with traffic congestion and evidence that carbon emissions from air travel contribute to climate change, we are still reliant on cars and planes.

One of the solutions is hydrogen Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft. Siobhan and Andrew share what they are doing to decarbonise aviation and what this will mean for the future of transport.

Bios

Siobhan Lyndon, former lawyer and human resources professional and Andrew Moore, aerospace engineer and former Australian Navy Officer, are partners in life and in business. Together they co-founded 'AMSL Aero' in 2017. The sustainable aircraft design and manufacturing company has successfully flown its first prototype electric Vertical Take Off and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft, Vertiia. The company employs around 60 highly skilled aviation engineers and specialists.
