The Paradigm Shift from Flying Machine Design to System of Systems Development

Roberto Garavaglia, SVP Competitive Analysis and Strategy, Leonardo Helicopters

 

Top 3 key learnings or takeaways:

  • Historically, the challenges for helicopter designers has been in the domain of classical aeronautical engineering – i.e. aeromechanics, propulsion, etc., to fly fast, high, safe
  • Over the years requirements to enhance operations has increased substantially (market pull), as well as opportunities provided by technologies advances (technology push)
  • Today we see high level of integration of on-board systems and with on-ground infrastructures, were multiple domains of engineering converge – this requires the engineers to cope with a  paradigm shift: from classical flying machine design to advanced System of Systems development

MULTI-CREW APPROACHES TO TRAINING: TECHNICAL VS NON-TECHNICAL SKILLS

Philippe Soveaux, Helicopter Rear Crew Instructor, Leonardo Helicopter Division - Training Academy

 

Top 3 key learnings or takeaways:

  • This presentation will discuss how more emphasis should be placed on Multi-crew approaches to non-technical skills training.
  • The improvement process begins with applying a different philosophy when developing and implementing training programs. A philosophy that inculcates best operating practices, which are relevant to the specific needs of the air operator.
  • Leonardo Helicopters Training Academy will share recommendations for effective multi-crew approaches to technical skills training in conjunction with non-technical skills training.
