“AFWERX Accelerate was a big week with Agility Prime having a ground-breaking ceremony for a simulation facility to allow experimentation from the researcher to the operator in the field,” said Gen. Arnold W. Bunch Jr., Commander of Air Force Materiel Command. The ground-breaking, as well as a “ribbon cutting ceremony” for an electric aircraft charging station, occurred at Ohio’s Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport. However both events were virtual given the worsening COVID-19 situation.
