Technology in Aerospace - Vision 2066

29 November 2016

No.4 Hamilton Place, London



After the breath-taking pace of development over the past 150 years, could we conclude that the pace of innovation of today cannot match the benchmarks set by our predecessors. Just 100 years ago, aviation was the domain of courageous adventurers and entrepreneurs. 

Today, we service an industry which underpins the global economy; which leads the world in safety; which invests mind-boggling sums in product development; for which technological development involves solving a vast array of interconnected challenges. 

There is much to lose as well as to gain. This risk environment, along with our acquired knowledge, has surely changed how we innovate. Or has it?

Conference highlight

The 2016 President’s Conference seeks to assess how the nature of innovation in aerospace has changed and whether the industry is still world-leading in terms of exploiting new technologies. Is the risk associated with new technology “over-priced” and holding back the pace of change?

The conference will focus broadly on energy, airframe and systems. Which technologies are going to make waves, and how soon? How will they be integrated with already mature, tried and tested processes and configurations? Can the pace of change be easily accelerated?

Why should you attend?
