Our next adventure takes us on a journey to make flight quiet, in a next-generation electric aircraft built by student innovators! We have embarked on a program that starts with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University designing and building a plane that will be used in tests performed with National Park Service noise experts starting in the Fall of 2015. The Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA is our mission control and will be bringing our story to millions of visitors and students through their educational partnerships.

Ensuring a Sustainable Future for Aviation

Our world depends on aviation for commerce, transportation, and recreation. Powering Imagination is dedicated to driving innovations that make aviation: CLEAN, QUIET, and EXCITING through INNOVATION, ADVENTURE, and STORYTELLING.

Erik Lindbergh, grandson of aviation pioneers Charles and Anne Morrow Lindbergh, founded Powering Imagination to continue a long-standing heritage of working toward achieving balance between technological advances and preservation of our natural environment. We partner with the leading innovators, educators, and storytellers to drive the dialog about the future of aviation, and to ensure that practical solutions are developed that enable future generations to experience the dream of flight!
