The free event, which is open to the public, will feature a variety of exhibits and displays, as well as family entertainment.

Bye Energy launched The Green Flight Project earlier this year to design and integrate an EHPS into a full-scale proof-of-concept airplane. The ultimate system architecture will include an electric motor and controller, lithium-ion battery and management system, electric energy management system, auxiliary power unit, thin film photovoltaic cells, variable pitch propeller and proprietary energy capture devices exclusive to the company.
