Coming up in the September/October 2019 issue of Rotor & Wing International:
Luxury Aircraft: We bring you the latest and most-spectacular from the world of VIP helicopters. From yachts with helipads to backyard heliports and glitzy interior design, how do the rich fly and how are companies catering to the most discerning tastes in luxury rotorcraft?
Army Aviation: Future Army rotorcraft won’t fly alone. In all likelihood they will have multiple robotic wingmen controlled from the cockpit and/or some level of autonomy. We explore the state of manned-unmanned teaming (MUM-T) and the military’s plan for introducing unmanned vehicle into its combat aviation brigades.
Perspective on Air Taxis: A veteran air traffic controller unpacks the challenges and benefits associated with urban air mobility. Implementing the revolution in vertical lift technology promised by UAM faces more hurdles than just developing airframes. We parse the path to flying taxis by examining the air traffic management conundrum the concept presents.
Pilot Training: There are too many helicopters and too few trained, certified pilots to fly them. It's a problem in the military and civilian sectors in the U.S. and abroad, and it likely will get worse if and when the air taxi market takes off. How can the industry address the shortage?
