As the 2015-16 academic year winds down, many exciting things are happening at UTIAS. Prof. Adam Steinberg was recently awarded the Hiroshi Tsuji Early Career Researcher Award by the Combustion Institute, an impressive international recognition of the excellence of Prof. Steinberg’s combustion research. Professor Angela Schoellig appeared on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin to discuss the future of robots. Prof. David Zingg discussed the importance of sustainable aviation in a video created for Research2Reality.

 

UTIAS’s two recently formed Centres, the Centre for Research in Sustainable Aviation (CRSA) and the Centre for Aerial Robotics Research and Education (CARRE) are now at full speed. The CRSA includes both innovative education and cutting edge research in sustainable aviation, producing a uniquely qualified group of graduates who are well prepared to enter Canada’s aerospace sector. CRSA research spans a wide range of technologies aimed at reducing noise and emissions, including lightweight structures, active flow control, unconventional aircraft configurations, and biofuel combustion, to name a few. More information can be found by clicking here.

 

The CRSA is also holding its 5th International Workshop on Aviation and Climate Change in May, an invitation-only event held every two years and attended by some of the world’s top experts in the field from the academic, industry, and government sectors. Also, it is not too late to register for the CRSA’s Summer School on Sustainable Aviation 2016: Active Flow Control, which will be held at UTIAS May 16-17. Click here for more information.

 

CARRE was established in May 2015 to meet the demand for engineers and scientists with the highly interdisciplinary education needed to contribute to the burgeoning field of civil unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which we refer to as aerial robots in order to emphasize the connection to robotics. In addition to its educational component, CARRE is engaged in leading edge research in many topics critical to the next generation of UAVs, including sensing and control for near-autonomous operation, aerodynamics, propulsion, structures, and materials. Although CARRE has numerous partners from the Canadian UAV industry, anyone interested in becoming involved with CARRE is encouraged to contact Prof. Hugh Liu at UTIAS.

FlightSafety International is pleased to announce that today, beginning in April 2016, the organization will be celebrating the 65th anniversary of its founding.

“Today we commemorate and celebrate FlightSafety’s 65th anniversary. Throughout our history, we have focused on our mission to enhance aviation safety while providing outstanding Customer service and the highest quality training and equipment,” said Bruce Whitman, Chairman, President & CEO. “We are most grateful to our Customers for the opportunity to be of service and to our Teammates for their dedication to excellence.”

“We will always be truly thankful to Al Ueltschi for founding this outstanding company,” he added. “Al’s vision, leadership, and commitment to safety are best summarized in his, and our, belief that the best safety device in any aircraft is a well-trained crew. This is as true and important today as it was in 1951.”

FlightSafety was incorporated in the State of New York on March 29, 1951. When the first aircraft built specifically for business aviation took flight, FlightSafety was there, working directly with Customers and aircraft manufacturers to develop and deliver safety-focused training.

Today FlightSafety serves business aviation, commercial airlines, and governments and military agencies around the world. Close to 1,800 instructors deliver more than 4,000 courses for 135 aircraft models as well as new advanced training programs and specialty courses throughout the company’s global network of Learning Centers and online through eLearning.
