“Cabin Crew, Prepare for the Digital World”




AeroExpo e-magazine is happy to see you back to business after the summer break. For this new edition, we focus on the digital simulations. Virtual reality is increasingly being used by cabin crew for training and by aerospace engineers for maintenance purposes. Digitization is also a tool for simulating air collisions. Prepare for boarding. Destination: the digital world.

    Virtual and augmented reality are among those technologies that have shown much promise for years, but have yet to make it on-board the aircraft for passenger service.   Airlines, so far, have rolled out standard phones, phablets and tablets for customer service purposes like recognizing frequent flyers, filling out...


    While the aerospace industry has led the way when it comes to managing and optimizing maintenance using digital twins, the benefits of creating a virtual doppelganger begin when a new aircraft is still on the drawing board.   Using digital twins during the pre-design stage can fast-track innovation by letting designers...


    With opinion divided when to comes to the threat that drones realistically pose to aircrafts, researchers are putting their theories to the test by simulating mid-air collisions.   As regulators like the Federal Aviation Authority pay more attention to the risks that drones pose to air traffic, researchers around the...

    Beneath the incredible optics of the flying displays at this year’s Farnborough Airshow are airframers and other exhibitors showing the range of their products in relatively small spaces. Step forward virtual reality, which Embraer is using to show off the cabin options on its E190-E2. Turboprop manufacturer ATR is...


    Emerging from the world of gaming, virtual reality has found a ready welcome in the aeronautic sector. Our partner publication DirectIndustry e-magazine was at Paris Air Show in June 2017, and met with various players of the aerospace industry to discuss how VR takes to the skies. Their video report tells a great deal...


    Shaken, like all sectors, by the digital revolution, the aeronautical, space and defense industries are at a turning point in their transformation. 3D printing, cloud computing, data analytics, artificial intelligence or simulation… stakeholders are accelerating their investments in digital technology but for the...

    The largest farm in Australia has an area of 23,677 square kilometers, which is about the size of Israel. Scale of this kind makes farming in the vast island nation particularly challenging. Keeping track of livestock or crops is so difficult some farmers are opting to use satellite images. But aviation technology...

    While drones have often been considered toys or leisure items, they are increasingly being used in industry and represent serious potential for saving time and money. We spoke with Thomas Nicholls, Chief Marketing Officer for industrial drone manufacturer Delair, about the place of drones in industry today and in the...


    At Posidonia 2018, global maritime industry group Wilhelmsen and Airbus signed a memorandum of understanding to develop an Unmanned Air System (UAS) for the delivery of ship supplies. The project will begin with a two-week pilot trial in Singapore. Wilhelmsen Ship Service will work with Airbus’ Skyways to deliver...


    Amid the flashbulbs of hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of aircraft orders, the Farnborough Airshow featured aircraft manufacturers — and airlines — showing off their latest and greatest cabins. Bombardier, meanwhile, is showing off its new CRJ regional jet cabin, Atmosphère. With cabins moving beyond just...


    When India’s fourth busiest airport considered how to reduce its energy costs it opted for a solar solution. Cochin International Airport in Kerala became the world’s first fully solar-powered airport in 2015 and was chosen to receive a UN Champion of Earth Prize in 2018.   Dubbed India’s “greenport,” it is powered by...

    Inner city, multi-level airports above railway lines – by 2040 a group of experts hopes its aviation ideas will be on track.   Dr. Kay Plötner, Head of Economics and Transportation at German research institution Bauhaus Luftfahrt, is overseeing the innovative CentAirStation and CityBird concepts. With air traffic...

    Flying cars, taxis and deliveries are hot topics. Stellar brands such as Uber, Google and NASA are all working on technology to transform passenger and freight transport, largely with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). But something is missing: how will they be controlled and managed safely in densely populated urban...


    Is 3D printing becoming the new manufacturing norm? The last few years have been good for additive manufacturing in the aviation industry. 3D printed aircraft parts are 30 to 55% lighter than traditionally made parts, making them good candidates for fuel efficiency and savings. At ILA Berlin, we met Aerotec and MTU...


    The aeronautics sector has become more sensitive to the environment. At ILA Berlin, which took place a few weeks ago in the south of the German capital, the key words were clean skies and sustainability. This was no coincidence. The aviation industry is striving to cut CO2 emissions in half by 2050 while noise levels...
