The scenarios of European Aviation foresee, by 2050, a resilient air transport system fully integrated with other transport systems, where passengers and goods will benefit from a "seamless" travel service. And it will all be sustainable: CO2 and NOx emissions will be reduced by 75% and 90% respectively. Also by 2050, the new generations of airplanes and helicopters, the Tiltrotors and RPAS aircraft will all operate in shared, non-segregated airspace (Flightpath 2050 Europe's Vision for Aviation).

Rotary-wing aircraft play a key part in the development of this new concept of mobility. This type of aircraft plays an increasingly important role in the field of public services (Search & Rescue and medical emergency), monitoring, regional transport, and Oil & Gas missions.

Over the next few years, the strategic line of Rotary-wing aircraft will bring to CIRA up-to-date and efficient tools for testing and calculation, and a multidisciplinary analysis system with which to:

  • Evaluate the technological impact of the solutions identified;

  • Define and outline a context for research and development;

  • Support the phases of conceptual planning, optimisation and long-life operations.

This will be carried out with:

  • The integration and consolidation of skills and expertise (laboratories and test equipment) and strong development of methods for multidisciplinary design and innovative manufacturing;

  • Updating of the design methods for the fields of application of interest to the national system;

  • The development of new tools and methods for numerical and experimental verification and validation, on the ground and in the air.

Rotary wing aircraft, or rotorcraft, play a key role in public services (Search & Rescue and medical emergency), monitoring, regional transport, and Oil & Gas missions. Their use in a resilient and integrated air transport system poses new challenges in terms of research and development.
