Global Transportation Finance Shareholders Edward K. Gross and David M. Hernandez will be presenting at the Revolution.Aero conference on October 1–2, 2018 in San Francisco.

Revolution.Aero, a global meeting place for people who are reshaping, rethinking and revolutionizing business and personal aviation, brings together new start-ups that are “disrupting the market” as well as companies that have been leading the aviation industry for decades. Attendees include investors, analysts, journalists, regulators, financiers, lawyers and other aviation professionals who understand how to help regulators plot the future.

Mr. Gross will moderate the panel, “Risky Business? Insuring the New Revolution,” where he and other panelists will ask:

  • How do insurers look at new technology?
  • Is the aviation market ready to underwrite new risks?

Mr. Hernandez will also moderate the panel “Build It and They Will Fly,” during which he and other panelists will discuss:

  • Why getting certification is hard but making money from building aircraft is much harder
  • What the biggest challenges are in moving from testing to production• Managing relationships with regulators
