“By far the most valuable event we’ve been to”
Bristow Group 

As soon as you walk into the Westin Hotel you will realise that you are at a very different aviation event. Revolution Aero Dublin 2022 will be a unique gathering of the people who are leading – funding and supporting – the future of flight.

Rival companies come together to discuss and solve mutual problems. Investors looking for the new opportunities meet with technical experts.


“In a ballroom that brought together executives from business aviation, manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus, and Rolls Royce, as well as Toyota and Uber, plus bankers, venture capitalists and inventors attire, ranged from starched button-down white shirts, grey suits and red solid ties to sneakers, jeans and t-shirts,” is how Forbes described our first San Francisco conference in 2018. “Yet, even the most seasoned of the old guard seemed wowed and impressed with the diversity of ideas and the optimism that aviation is, for the first time in more than half a century, on the verge of a significant breakthrough not seen since the introduction of the jet age and the era of the jumbo jet.”

“At the first Revolution.Aero, I met David Merrill, CEO of Elroy Air. We invested in his company shortly thereafter. We’ve now invested in at least three of the companies that presented this year and are close to investing in a fourth. I always learn something I didn’t know, meet the industry’s leaders, and identify companies in which we will invest.”



Revolution Aero Dublin will look at opportunities and challenges for companies involved with:

  • Advanced Air Mobility
  • Autonomous Aviation
  • Electric aircraft
  • Hydrogen
  • Vertiports and infrastructure

The Future is wide open in Advanced Air Mobility. Revolution.Aero is the place to meet the visionaries and dreamers but also the many people who will actually make it happen

eVertiports Agenda


Revolution Aero Dublin will feature a mixture of TED-style (18 minute) presentations, fireside chats and panels. All sessions are as interactive as possible with time allowed for questions – both with microphones and online – polling and comments.  Sessions are available on video after the event.
