The Vertical Flight Society has spun off of its H2eVTOL Council, formed in May 2020 to promote the development and advancement of hydrogen fuel cell technology in electric aircraft, into its own independent nonprofit organisation, the HYSKY Society.

In that time, it has grown to over 400 participants and has become a leading voice in the hydrogen-electric aviation community, and will now have the autonomy and resources to expand its reach and impact.

The H2eVTOL Council’s monthly meetings will now be known as HYSKY Monthly and will feature distinguished speakers from the hydrogen, aviation and eVTOL aircraft sectors.

The HYSKY Society is founded and led by Danielle McLean, a leading expert in the field of hydrogen fuel cell technology and eVTOL aircraft, who brings over a decade of experience in the industry. In recognition of her efforts, she was recently included in this year’s edition of the eVTOL Insights Power Book.

“We are thrilled to see the H2eVTOL Council now grow and evolve into its own independent organization,” said Mike Hirschberg, Executive Director of the Vertical Flight Society.

“Under Danielle’s leadership, the HYSKY Society will continue to be a vital partner of the Vertical Flight Society and we look forward o working together to advance the eVTOL industry.”

The HYSKY Society will also work to educate and inform the public about the benefits of hydrogen-powered eVTOL aircraft and the role they will play in shaping the future of transportation.

In addition, VFS is hosting its highly anticipated 10th Biennial Autonomous VTOL Technical Meeting and 10th Annual Electric VTOL Symposium, featuring distinguished speakers and panel discussions from the industry, including McLean.

She will host the event’s annual Hydrogen Electric Aircraft Panel with representatives from the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Piasecki Aircraft, and ZeroAvia.

Although the in-person event is sold out, virtual tickets are still available for those who would like to participate remotely at:
