Airbus vision for the future of vertical flight

Tomasz Krysinski
Vice President Research and Innovation at Airbus Helicopters

Significant advances in electric components, sensor technologies, simulation capabilities and data analytics are offering completely new opportunities for the development and operation of rotorcraft. Our Airbus flagship demonstrators such as the Racer, FlightLab and DisruptiveLab, but also the CityAirbus NextGen, are integrating key innovations in aeromechanics, hybrid-electric propulsion and new ways of piloting that substantiate our ambition to lead the helicopter industry and pioneer new VTOL for a sustainable aerospace.

Validation of a Motion Sickness Prediction Model via Flight Tests on DLR's Bo-105 Helicopter

Philippe Petit
Research Engineer at Institute of Flight Systems at German Aerospace Center (DLR) | Winner of Alfred Gessow Award of the VFS 2023

To validate a previously developed motion sickness model geared towards vertical flight applications, flight tests with a MBB Bo-105 were conducted. The test design and implementation included the development of a smartphone-based measurement flight instrumentation, auditive cueing systems and questionnaires. The results of the flight tests are compared to those of the motion sickness model, in order to show good congruency for medium motion sickness.

The lecture will be presented by Frederik Döring.
