How Military Aviators Train: As military services in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Germany and elsewhere upgrade rotorcraft flight-crew training programs, we assess the state-of-the-art in simulation and update readers on the status of the U.S. Navy’s search for a new training helicopter.
Future Military Vertical Lift: The U.S. military struggles with the challenge of how to make Future Vertical Lift a truly joint program that meets diverse mission requirements with a common family of aircraft. We examine the current debate, brief you on efforts by Sikorsky-Boeing and Bell Helicopter to develop Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstrators to support that program and investigate future vertical-lift efforts outside the U.S.
Degraded Visual Environments: Advanced Sensors for Military and Civil: Obscured conditions — brown-out, white-out, fog and clouds — are top killers of rotorcraft flight crews and passengers, despite decades of research on solutions. We delve into current efforts to fuse multiple sensors into life-saving pilot aids for both military and civil crews and initiatives to refine flight training to defeat this threat.
