Technical Meeting Monday, October 8, 2012

Place: Boeing 3-04.1 D4 REC Room
Time: 4:30 PM

For Non-Boeing Attendees (US Persons Only)
RSVP by Thursday October 4th, 5pm
Email: edward.w.brouwers@boeing.com

Arrive at Boeing 3-10 Visitor’s Lobby Monday October 8th by 4:10 pm. Group will leave lobby promptly at 4:15 pm.

Professor Gareth D. Padfield of the University of Liverpool will present his perspective on how Rotorcraft Handling Qualities Engineering evolved from an idea into a substantive discipline, embracing a wide range of technologies that manage the tension between the twin goals of aviation – performance and safety. Key events from nearly 70 years of rotorcraft handling qualities technology development will be highlighted to reflect the continual growth of the discipline and illustrate how we arrived at a point where designers now have within their grasp the performance standards, criteria, test techniques, understanding of rotorcraft aeromechanics and control, and design tools to ensure that handling deficiencies never again have to define the boundary of the operational flight envelope. The lecture will reinforce the viewpoint that good handling qualities, particularly throughout missions conducted in degraded environments and during hazardous operations, forge a satisfactory union between flight performance and flight safety and relieve the tension between these goals. Handling Qualities challenges that lie ahead such as achieving super-Level 1 performance, implementing “right-first-time” design tools, and comprehensive support of the education of future Handling Qualities Engineers will be also be summarized.
