The International Powered Lift Conference (IPLC) focuses on the latest developments in Vertical and/or Short Take-Off and Landing (V/STOL) aircraft research, concepts, and programs.
IPLC, which was first held 25 years ago, is a joint AIAA-AHS-SAE-RAeS technical meeting. AIAA is the host organization this year -- the event will be held in Los Angeles, California, as part of AIAA’s AVIATION 2013, August 12-14, 2013.
IPLC 2013 will bring together engineers, technologists, and managers to discuss the latest developments in V/STOL. Topics will focus on the technologies, promise, and progress of powered lift systems, with applications ranging from helicopters to advanced rotorcraft to runway independent aircraft to jet-borne lift aircraft.
