The Future of Aviation
24th September, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Aviation is going to change dramatically during this coming decade. We’ll see the rise of urban air mobility, with drones and sky taxis above and around our cities. Single pilot operations, most likely beginning with cargo aircraft but progressing to airliners, is likely to come to pass before 2030. AI, probably first in the form of intelligent assistance, will appear before the end of the decade, and will not only affect the flight deck but also air
traffic and airport operations.
On Wednesday 23 September, we’ll be launching our new white paper that explores in detail the human factors challenges that need to be overcome in order to ensure safety in our skies as these developments take shape. The white paper “The human dimension in tomorrow’s aviation system”, will be introduced through a webinar featuring viewpoints from the civil and military domains, led by Barry Kirwan of Eurocontrol.
