Inter-regional mobility using small aircraft could offer socio economic benefits and time saving for businesses. This research project explored how small aircraft operations can become part of the air transport system, studying - among other things - technological requirements and safety aspects.
During the workshop, a Technology Roadmap to implement the Common Vision for Small Aircraft Transport (SAT) in practice will be discussed.

The transport theme under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) welcomes excellent research proposals looking for innovative solutions to today’s transport-related societal challenges.
Are you from an SME, company, research institution or university and interested in learning more about how to participate in the transport theme under the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7)? Meet us and potential partners at the ‘infodays’ and find out all about the Work Programme 2013.
The aim of the two-day event is to inform potential researchers about FP7 and the new Transport Calls for Proposals under the ‘Co-operation’ Programme. Details will also be given on the main legal and procedural conditions and we will respond to your questions. Participants will also have the chance to network with potential project partners.

Loss of control in flight (LOC-I) is the leading cause of fatal accidents in commercial aviation today. In the course of loss of control events, the aircraft often enters into unusual attitudes or stalls, also called upsets. However, due to a lack of validated aircraft models outside the normal operating envelope, current flight simulators do not adequately represent aircraft behavior at the edge of the envelope.
The European FP-7 project SUPRA – Simulation of Upset Recovery in Aviation – has addressed this gap and will present the overall results of the project to various stakeholders and to discuss their usefulness for commercial pilot training.

This open workshop is organised jointly by ACARE and the Aeronautics ERA-Net AirTN and aims to identify the needs of aviation stakeholders for future key personnel in research, engineering and operations. It will address aspects of education and training by aviation relevant institutions and will involve relevant expert groups and associations.

The EWENT project dealt with extreme Weather impacts on European networks of transport. At this final conference the EWENT researchers and researchers of related projects will present their findings on:
1. What are the extreme weather phenomena that are most harmful to transport system and what and where are the biggest impacts?
2. How these phenomena are going to change in pace with expected climate change?
3. What are the total costs induced to transport system by extreme weather?
4. What European parts – geographically, mode-wise – are most vulnerable to extreme weather?
5. How can we prepare ourselves, what are the means and the tools?
