How global events shake up our industry
The aerospace industry is heavily influenced by developments around the world. We push limits to respond to demand. But how is our industry affected when there is a global event? And, more specifically, how does it affect Aeronamic? Due to the current circumstances, Steffen de Vries believed it was time to share an update on that very subject.
Enabling change through technology
Changing times lead to a changing world. A lot of major changes are often reflected in the use and development of technology. In the engineering playing field, we have always been at the cutting edge and able to anticipate upcoming changes. But there’s no use being a frontrunner if we don’t have a strong connection with the market.
When product development spreads its wings
We first got to know Mark Gerber in 2005 when he was part of our Aeronamic team as a researcher from the Delft University of Technology. Seven years later, he joined our company taking on the role of R&D Lead Engineer. Now, ten years later, he has switched roles and became our new Vice President of Engineering.
Join our mission zero
A couple of months ago, I provided you with an update on the exciting sustainable developments at Aeronamic. I told you that there was a lot going on, especially when it came to vertical take-off and landing, and I promised to write more about it soon. Well, here we are! Aeronamic is no stranger to sustainable aviation and, over the past decade, we have been developing components that contribute to more sustainable aviation.
Introducing our cabin pressurization system
As a tier 2 company, we have a lot of experience acting as a liaison within the aerospace industry. We know our way between system integrators and suppliers, for example. And just as well we know how to be of value to the Clean Sky 2 project, together with Leonardo Helicopters and the NLR. At present, we‘re working together on the Leonardo Next-Generation Civil Tiltrotor (NGCTR) and one huge achievement as a result of this project was the introduction of our innovative cabin pressurization system.
Exciting sustainable developments at Aeronamic
We had hoped to attend the Paris Airshow and meet our customers and partners. To catch up and share recent experiences, but also to show Aeronamic’s current developments and innovations. Well, we don’t have to explain why the Airshow in Paris was canceled, but although COVID-19 is still ongoing, we can also see bright spots in our industry. The number of flights is increasing. Domestic flights are even at their usual level and international flights are slowly starting up again. This means that our work in commercial aviation is once more on the rise.
Breakthrough in our Nedefa project
Last December, we achieved a breakthrough in the NEDEFA project with a series of successful tests on a test-rig that we designed. With this project, Aeronamic is developing new technologies for aircraft environmental control systems, together with TU Delft and partners.
