This conference will build upon the 2014 and 2016 automation conferences and, in addition, consider the impact of the changes that will result from SESAR, UAS in the lower airspace and the potential introduction of Performance Based Navigation to rotorcraft operations.
The primary aim of the conference will be to engender a dialogue aimed at ensuring the continuation of a healthy onshore rotorcraft industry that plays its part in a fast-changing industrial landscape.
The full programme is available below.
- To assess the potential, and challenges, of the introduction of automation in Para-public and General Aviation operations.
- To discuss the future integration of UAS and rotorcraft in an increasingly crowded lower airspace – can we practically, and safely, ‘sense and avoid’?
- To examine how States have leveraged Performance Based Navigation to improve their coverage in Degraded Visual Environments.
- To hear how manufacturers intend to support future operations in challenging environments with varied scenarios.
