International Flight Crew Training Conference, London, 18-19 September 2019

Date: 18-Sep-19 to 19-Sep-19
Location: United Kingdom
The Annual International Flight Crew Training Conference is a premier event in the calendar. Last year’s Conference addressed the modernisation of flight crew training made possible by introducing Competency Based Training and Assessment (CBTA). This year the aim is to challenge the remaining vestiges of previous thinking and examine and discuss the opportunities to complete the transformation using practices and processes that make full use of today’s technology and understanding of human interactions. The Royal Aeronautical Society is privileged to have been asked to progress various aspects of flight crew training with the aim of improving safety. Safe operations require the maintenance of standards by adopting best practices. Training strategies and training systems need to exploit ...

The Real World's Counterpart: Digital Twins RAeS in London, 8 October 2019

Date: 08-Oct-19 to 08-Oct-19
Location: United Kingdom
This Structures and Materials Group conference illustrates current Digital Twin applications and the potential for future development. It addresses a wide range of applications from complex aircraft to modeling the human heart.

Airspace Access: Integrated or Segregated?

Date: 09-Oct-19 to 10-Oct-19
Location: United Kingdom
It has acknowledged that in order to enable the benefits that unmanned aircraft can bring to society, particularly in beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations, it is imperative that they are safely integrated with all other air users in the national airspace. There has been a number of recent proposals that an Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) system, or U-Space (as the EU has labelled it), either locally or nationally, will make this a reality. Several UTM solutions have been proposed and are being researched. These have the aim of providing the safe, secure and efficient integration of drones into national airspace systems with the focus on Low Level VLOS and increasingly BVLOS operations. However, each of these systems comes to both benefits and concerns. This year’s annual RAeS ...

Aerodynamics Tools and Methods in Aircraft Design London 14-15 October 2019

Date: 14-Oct-19 to 15-Oct-19
Location: United Kingdom
This 1.5 day technical conference, with specialist and expert speakers from home and abroad, will discuss the current state-of-the-art in theoretical and experimental tools and methods in aircraft design. With advances in CFD, MDO, Wind-Tunnel and Flight-Test capabilities, the focus is also on what is needed to cope with future unconventional platforms. How should these tools evolve and develop to meet the demands and requirements of future programmes of civil and military airplanes, UAVs, rotorcraft, electric and autonomous vehicles, automobiles, weapons, space vehicles, maritime vessels, and wind turbines? Key subject areas: - Aerodynamics: Low Speed, Transonic and - Aircraft Design, including Environmental and Efficiency - Multi-Disciplinary - ...

5th Annual Airborne ISR

Date: 23-Oct-19 to 24-Oct-19
Location: London / United Kingdom
In the complex and ever-changing strategic landscape, the demand for increased situational awareness continues to grow. As a decisive and indispensable tool, air-based ISTAR is increasingly relied upon to deliver tactical data and intelligence for commanders, as well as deliver effective strategic deterrence. SMi’s 5th annual Airborne ISR conference will focus on the platforms and supporting infrastructures of Airborne ISR operations when it returns to London, UK on the 23rd and 24th October 2019. The event will cover a range of crucial topics involving manned and unmanned platforms, and data management and dissemination tools. Early Bird Discounts!

Greener by Design Conference 2019 RAeS in London - Thursday 7 November

Date: 07-Nov-19 to 07-Nov-19
Location: United Kingdom
Aviation and the Net Zero Emissions Climate Change is the aviation industry’s biggest environmental challenge. The industry can already boast the first global, sector-wide, market-based climate measurement in CORSIA and is also committed to a net 50% reduction in emissions by 2050. However, there is growing evidence of climate warming and the latest IPCC report urges the world to aim for a tighter limit on warming and that to do so requires a reduction to “Net-Zero Emissions” by the middle of this century. Should aviation now raise its own ambition? If so, how? What contribution can technology and operational efficiency make and how much will this hard-to-abate sector depend on replacement, zero-carbon, fuels and market-based mechanisms? This year’s annual Greener by Design ...

Rotorcraft Simulation – Trends and Future Applications

Date: 12-Nov-19 to 13-Nov-19
Location: United Kingdom
The Annual Royal Aeronautical Society Flight Simulation Group Autumn Conference will focus on the theme of rotorcraft simulation. From traditional, single main rotor helicopters to small, multirotor drones, rotorcraft provide a number of unique challenges regarding simulation – whether the focus of simulation is to support training, research, engineering, or something else. Helicopter operations, whether civilian or military, are diverse and for many operators no two flights are the same. Often the aircraft’s rear crew play a direct role in the flying tasks. Much of the time is spent in airspace where external forces and actors are more likely to influence your flying, and in the near future airspace for autonomous vehicles will be in close proximity. Many of the challenges in rotorcraft ...

Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium in Koln, Germany, Nov 2019

Date: 13-Nov-19 to 14-Nov-19
Location: Germany
Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium is the world’s leading international conference dedicated to ultra-low-emission aircraft technology and full-electric flight possibilities. The two-day event will cover all aspects of aerospace activity, from general aviation and smaller regional aircraft, to larger commercial airliners. Its purpose is to highlight the fast-paced development of hybrid propulsion and electrical subsystem architecture or MEA and to discuss the vast research into increased electrification of aircraft and the possibilities and challenges that brings. Now in its fifth year, Electric & Hybrid Aerospace Technology Symposium has firmly established itself as the premier event for high-level aerospace engineers, designers, leading research academics, ...

Global Megatrends and Aviation Forum, London, 14-15 November 2019

Date: 14-Nov-19 to 15-Nov-19
Location: United Kingdom
Today, few in aviation would argue that the aviation industry does not face significant and potentially disruptive changes in the foreseeable future. The decisions that you take today will create the reality that you will deal with tomorrow. Understanding how the industry might evolve over the next 20 years to 2040 will enable action today to make organisations more resilient and successful. Megatrends are the global transformative forces changing the entire world, affecting labour, assets and infrastructure, systems and processes, political and corporate structures and even human existence. Multiple megatrends are in play simultaneously: their dynamics and impacts vary significantly across industries and sectors. There are few who are unaware of their growing impact upon the world around ...
