The Past and Future of Vertical Flight
December 6, 2019 - Sometimes we take modern technology for granted, but we don’t have to look very far back in the history of flight to see just how far we have come.
I was impressed by the compilation of clips, set out below – but particularly the early helicopter clips.
The principles of flight are largely unchanged, but the early days serve as a stark reminder of just how the technology has been refined. Composite construction, HFDM, stroking seats, fire-resistant fuel cells, SAS and autopilot systems, GPS, ADS-B, co-axial and intermeshing rotor systems, NOTAR systems, tilt-rotor systems, and electric motors – just to name a few. It makes you wonder what the next 80 years will bring.
December 6, 2019 - As you may know, the International Helicopter Safety Team (IHST) recently incorporated, and changed its name to International Helicopter Safety Foundation (IHSF) – a Not-for-Profit Corporation. HAC’s President & CEO sits on the Board of the IHSF.
December 6, 2019 - This note is to share – for general information – the summary report from a recent workshop that Transport Canada (TC) held with industry stakeholders on May 29-30, 2019.
