eVTOL Insights’ Montreal Conference & Awards 2024


Vports is a world leader in the design, con­struc­tion and oper­a­tion of Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty (AAM) infra­struc­ture. Its lead­er­ship team has exten­sive expe­ri­ence in many areas, includ­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion with Civ­il Avi­a­tion author­i­ties, oper­a­tion, cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, reg­u­la­tion and urban inte­gra­tion

Horizon Aircraft

Found­ed by an elite fight­er pilot and fueled by a life­time in mil­i­tary and com­mer­cial avi­a­tion expe­ri­ence, Hori­zon Air­craft has assem­bled a team of engi­neers, pilots, and busi­ness spe­cial­ists ded­i­cat­ed to expand­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ties of region­al trans­porta­tion.


Wisk is an Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty (AAM) com­pa­ny ded­i­cat­ed to deliv­er­ing safe, every­day flight for every­one. Wisk is a ful­ly-owned Boe­ing sub­sidiary and is head­quar­tered in the San Fran­cis­co Bay Area, with loca­tions around the world.

Cert Center Canada

Cert Cen­ter Cana­da is an inde­pen­dent flight test, research, devel­op­ment and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion cen­ter pro­vid­ing a wide range of ser­vices to the aero­space com­mu­ni­ty in Cana­da and around the world.


Blueshift is a tech­nol­o­gy leader in ther­mal pro­tec­tion sys­tems (TPS) for the Aero­space Indus­try. The company’s pro­pri­etary port­fo­lio includes AeroZe­ro® TPS, which pro­tects crit­i­cal light­weight struc­tures and com­po­nents in air and space vehi­cles from tran­sient flame and ther­mal events with tem­per­a­tures rang­ing from minus 200 °C to over 2,000 °C.

TE Connectivity

With deep expe­ri­ence in the auto­mo­tive, aero­space, and ener­gy sec­tors, TE Con­nec­tiv­i­ty works with indus­try stan­dards groups – like the Soci­ety of Auto­mo­tive Engi­neers (SAE) and ARINC – to address tomorrow’s press­ing chal­lenges. From pow­er dis­tri­b­u­tion to in-flight enter­tain­ment and cab­in fea­tures, TE experts are direct­ly involved in help­ing design­ers “fol­low the wire” to select the appro­pri­ate advanced and urban air mobil­i­ty solu­tions to light­en the load, save space, and boost per­for­mance of EVTOL sys­tems.


CAE is a high-tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­ny, bring­ing the dig­i­tal and phys­i­cal worlds clos­er togeth­er to cre­ate a safer world. Its vision is to be the world­wide part­ner of choice in civ­il avi­a­tion and defence and secu­ri­ty by rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing its cus­tomers’ train­ing and crit­i­cal oper­a­tions with dig­i­tal­ly immer­sive solu­tions to ele­vate safe­ty, effi­cien­cy and readi­ness.


The elec­tri­fi­ca­tion of avi­a­tion is a poten­tial game-chang­er for our soci­eties. With the con­tin­ued growth of pop­u­la­tions and mega-cities around the globe, we have an oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­nect peo­ple sus­tain­ably. At Rolls-Royce, we’re devel­op­ing, test­ing, and inno­vat­ing the tech­nolo­gies and sys­tems to cre­ate the elec­tric propul­sion and ener­gy sys­tems of tomor­row.


Lil­i­um (NASDAQ: LILM) is cre­at­ing a sus­tain­able and acces­si­ble mode of high-speed, region­al trans­porta­tion for peo­ple and goods. Using the Lil­i­um Jet, an all-elec­tric ver­ti­cal take-off and land­ing jet, designed to offer lead­ing capac­i­ty, low noise, and high per­for­mance with zero oper­at­ing emis­sions, Lil­i­um is accel­er­at­ing the decar­boniza­tion of air trav­el.


Viasat is devel­op­ing the ulti­mate glob­al com­mu­ni­ca­tions net­work to pow­er high-qual­i­ty, reli­able, secure, afford­able, fast con­nec­tions to pos­i­tive­ly impact people’s lives any­where they are—on the ground, in the air or at sea, while build­ing a sus­tain­able future in space. In May 2023, Viasat com­plet­ed its acqui­si­tion of Inmarsat, com­bin­ing the teams, tech­nolo­gies and resources of the two com­pa­nies to cre­ate a new glob­al com­mu­ni­ca­tions part­ner.
