    Leading advocates of electric technology for aviation will meet later this month at the Museum of Flight in Seattle to offer an all-day symposium that's free and open to the public. The event will feature talks by Erik Lindbergh, founder of the Lindbergh Electric Aircraft Prize; George Bye, CEO of Aero Electric Aircraft Corp.; Dean Sigler of the CAFE Foundation; and more, including experts in fuel cell and battery technology. The symposium will be held Saturday, Feb. 28, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will include displays of electric-powered vehicles.

    Topics to be discussed will include an update on NASA's LEAPTech project, the Quiet Flight Initiative, video updates from Europe, and the electric aircraft STEM education challenge. The presenters also will attend a reception where they can answer questions from attendees. Prior registration is required through the museum website. Although admittance to the symposium is free, a fee is required to visit the museum exhibits.
