Aviation is going to change dramatically in the next decade. Urban air mobility will rise, employing drones and sky taxis. By 2030, single pilot operations will probably become a reality. The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and intelligent assistants in aviation will not only affect the flight deck but also air traffic and airport operations....

The European guide on stress management in air traffic control is now available on skybrary. The guide intends to help air traffic control professionals recognise stress, and identify possible mechanisms to mitigate its effects. Although the guide was born before the COVID-19 emergency, the pandemic makes it even more meaningful and relevant. In fact, the spread...

A week ago, together with SESAR JU, we kicked off the H2020 project SAFELAND, “SAFE LANDing through enhanced ground support”. Aim of SAFELAND is creating a valuable solution to support flight and landing of aircraft operated by a single pilot, due to partial or total incapacitation of the pilot. During its 30 month duration, the...

The latest issue of HindSight magazine is now online! Published on Skybrary, HindSight 30 focuses on the themes of well-being and stress. We are present with our article titled "Stress prevention through organisational-level interventions", which describes four good practices that aviation organisations can put in place to prevent and manage work-related stress. Many thanks to...

On the 20th of April, the Resilience Engeenering Association (REA) will host a free webinar on resilience and COVID-19. Our Human Factors expert Martina Ragosta will contribute, outlining the impact the pandemic is having on the aviation domain. The webinar is part of a series on resilience engineering topics. Currently, REA is adjusting its webinar scheduling...

Yesterday, we attended the first ClimOP WP1 workshop. ClimOp aims at recommending policymakers a set of promising strategies to mitigate the impact of aviation on climate. During the workshop, we have selected the most climate-relevant aviation operational improvements. Together with aviation stakeholders, ClimOP will further model, quantitatively analyse and assess them. Interesting and fruitful group discussions...

Skill-UP: skilling, upskilling and reskilling in the future Air Transport kicks-off today. Launched in the framework of the Erasmus+ initiative, the Skill-UP research project defines new knowledge, skills and competences required for the different professionals of the aeronautical sector of the future. Starting from a needs analysis, Skill-UP intends to redesign educational and vocational training...

At the beginning of 2020, Deep Blue has joined EATEO, the European Association of Aviation Training and Educational Organisations. Our continuous research activities feed our training offer, making us able to design bespoke, customised training courses tailored to your needs and delivered with advanced training skills. Have a look at our current training calendar to know...

The EASA commission has approved the new EU drone regulation that replaces national legislation for drones. Simplified rules and higher safety standards for those who want to operate with RPAS, remotely piloted aircraft systems. Here are the main changes.   The common European regulation for drones has entered into force. In June 2018, the European Parliament approved...

Today we are in Eurocontrol headquarters in Brussels (Belgium) to kick-off SAFEMODE, a H2020 project on making Human Factors data and information usable for system and operations designers, safety managers, and regulators. The main challenge of SAFEMODE will be decoding the Human Factors iceberg. While the tip represents what is visible (the human involvement in accidents/incidents),...
