The future of aviation revealed in a new white paper

Updated: Nov 15, 2020

The Human Dimension In Tomorrow's Aviation System

Aviation is going to change dramatically during this coming decade. We’ll see the rise of urban air mobility, with drones and sky taxis above and around our cities. Single pilot operations, most likely beginning with cargo aircraft but progressing to airliners, is likely to come to pass before 2030. AI, probably first in the form of intelligent assistance, will appear before the end of the decade, and will not only affect the flight deck but also air traffic and airport operations.

Our new white paper, “The human dimension in tomorrow’s aviation system”, explores in detail the human factors challenges that need to be overcome in order to ensure safety in our skies as these developments take shape. The white paper was introduced through a webinar featuring viewpoints from the civil and military domains, led by Barry Kirwan of Eurocontrol.

In this white paper, you’ll discover a fascinating roadmap and vision of aviation from 1945 to 2050, and learn how thought leaders see the future of aviation, in terms of key human factors, technical, sociotechnical and regulatory challenges. The thought leader pieces in the white paper, when taken collectively, argue that the coming decade will be nothing short of a paradigm shift, a transition to next generation aviation, which will change the way we use and think about aviation in both civil and military aviation domains. Don’t miss this chance to look beyond the current situation brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic and to take a glimpse at the uncharted journey that aviation is about to undertake.
