Aviation and COVID-19: The Next 3 Months

May 29

10:00 EDT / 15:00 BST / 16:00 CEST

 

It has been nearly three months since the coronavirus forced much of Europe and North America into sudden lockdowns and grounded the lion’s share of airline traffic. What will the next three months bring – for airlines, aircraft manufacturers, suppliers and MRO providers? And what happens if government bailouts start to run out?

 

Aviation Week’s writers have been on the front lines throughout the crisis and share their views of where the industry is heading in the coming months.

Aerospace Supply Chain: The New Superpower Battleground?

May 22

10:00 EDT/ 15:00 BST / 16:00 CEST

 

The COVID-19  cash crisis has added a new wrinkle to the race between the U.S. and China to achieve strategic superiority by harnessing discriminating technologies.

 

Will Beijing leverage the crisis by using “adversarial capital” to take stakes in suppliers and startups that are critical to the western defense industrial base? Can the U.S. and its allies thwart such efforts by creating a “trusted capital” ecosystem of venture capitalists, private equity and funds to invest in crucial suppliers desperate for cash?

Can the U.S. Air Force Help Save UAM?

May 15

 

With the impact of COVID-19 on private investment and corporate R&D alike, can the nascent electric VTOL industry survive to inaugurate the age of urban air mobility? Can a U.S. Air Force program called Agility Prime help the industry get through this interregnum and attract investment? And why was VTOL such a hot topic before COVID-19 hit. Can it regain that heat?

 

Vertical Flight Society Executive Director Mike Hirschberg joins Aviation Week editors to discuss this glimmer of hopeful news in hard times.

Sustainability in the Era of COVID-19

May 7 

 

The aviation industry’s efforts to improve sustainability have been put on the back burner as the COVID-19 crisis has forced airlines and commercial aircraft manufacturers to focus on survivability. How will the crisis set back electric propulsion and other efforts to lower aviation’s contribution to climate change? Will accelerated retirements of older, less efficient aircraft help offset those delays? And should governments be mandating cleaner and quieter airplanes in exchange for billions of dollars in economic aid to the industry?

 

Industry experts from Airlines for America and the International Council on Clean Transportation join Aviation Week editors to discuss what aviation leaders should be thinking about now to be positioned for a greener future when the industry recovers.

10:00 EDT / 15:00 BST / 16:00 CEST

 

Airlines have been increasing their average aircraft size for years, but will small aircraft be better positioned when the industry begins to emerge from the COVID-19 groundings?

 

John Slattery, President and CEO of Embraer Commercial Aviation, joins Aviation Week editors in a free, interactive webinar on May 1 to discuss how the crisis could bolster demand for regional jets and smaller narrowbodies at the expense of larger aircraft.
