  • ARISTOTEL: Addressing complex pilot-aircraft coupling issues in the sky
    Published on: 20/09/2013
    Image
    A highly trained pilot is at the controls of a helicopter. She is attempting to lift off and deliver a payload that is suspended, like a pendulum, below the craft. Suddenly a gust of wind tilts the rotor slightly; the pilot attempts to right the helicopter, but over-compensates. A life-threatening situation has emerged in a matter of seconds.

  • Safer recovery from difficult flight conditions
    Published on: 16/02/2012
    Image
    Aircraft are very safe, but unexpected, extremely difficult flight conditions do happen. Up to now, no simulator has been able to give pilots training that could prepare them realistically for situations like these. The SUPRA project has succeeded in building a flight simulator to train pilots for harsh conditions.
  • How a holistic approach can help aircraft noise reduction
    Published on: 03/02/2012
    Image
    Aircraft noise is a daily blight on the lives of millions.  Although aircraft noise is caused by a large number of factors, previous efforts to reduce it have only ever looked at those factors in isolation.  A unique EU project involving 47 partners, including major players in aeronautics, aims to take a ‘whole-aircraft’ approach, significantly reducing the noise by tackling the problem as a whole.
