Topic:

Electric Aircraft: Survey, Applications, and Tradeoffs

A survey of past, present, and future aircraft using electric motor(s) to drive propeller(s), including applications and tradeoffs that drive the aircraft design.  There are currently new models of flight training aircraft coming to the market that promise lower per hour and maintenance costs, while providing sufficient flight endurance for much of the typical training activity.  Still in the concept phase are short-distance shuttles, and even hybrid powered transport aircraft.

Biography:

Rhon Williams grew up in Dayton, Ohio near WPAFB, and got to see all kinds of military planes flying over his house. His Dad took him to air shows, so he gained an interest in aviation at a young age. While earning a PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of Illinois, Rhon took flight training as some of his courses, ultimately earning a commercial pilot license, rated to fly single and multi-engine airplanes, gliders, and helicopters; and a flight instructor rating for airplanes, instruments, and gliders.

After moving to California, Rhon taught flying part time while working as an engineer, and now co-owns a Cirrus SR22, in which he and his wife enjoy many flying trips. Past trips included flying northwest to Banff, northeast to New Jersey, southeast to Bahamas, and southwest to Cabo San Lucas. He is an active home-builder having completed a plans-built Early Bird Jenny which first flew in December 2015.

After retiring in 2011 as a Program Manager at Northrop Grumman, he now gets to spend more time at the airport playing with airplanes. Rhon is active in the Experimental Aircraft Association, Civil Air Patrol, and gives presentations to pilots as a FAA Safety Team representative. He is also a member of IEEE, AIAA, and AAAS.

IEEE will soon be extending Concur, the new Volunteer Expense Reimbursement Platform, to IEEE Regions! Concur is already in use by IEEE Major Boards, Committees, Societies and Technical Councils and the feedback has been very positive.

Concur provides fast and efficient expense reimbursement for IEEE volunteers.

More information is coming soon, so stay tuned!

Biography:

I currently work for the US Army Information Systems Engineering Command as a computer scientist at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. My career has taken me all over the world to establish and maintain computer and communications systems. I have served in a number of volunteer and other organizations to work with others for the good of all stakeholders. These experiences have involved organizations such as federal and state governments, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, IEEE, local and indigenous churches, and others. I have served as a big brother, engineer, missionary, science fair judge, Future City Competition mentor, gymnastics coach, and firefighter/EMT. I hold a bachelors degree in electrical engineering and a masters in business administration and management information systems.  I maintain professional engineer status as granted by the Arizona State Board of Technical Registration. I am currently serving as the IEEE Region 6 Director.
