A&D: Getting Back To Work

July 1

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

 

As furloughs and layoffs have made the headlines, it’s the work behind the scenes — to get as many people back to work as possible — that is keeping aerospace and defense leaders busy. From reshaping the physical workspace to updating training and certifications, the tasks have been endless.

 

In this webinar, three industry executives will discuss what they have done to ensure employee safety while at work and get back to some form of efficiency. They’ll also share lessons learned and trends from across multiple industries.

Advantage Airbus?

June 26

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

 

As it deals with fallout from the COVID-19 crisis, Airbus must define a plan to lower production over the coming years. There is also renewed government pressure for more sustainable aircraft, including research into a carbon-neutral A320neo successor. But with Boeing grappling with the MAX crisis and struggling to blunt the phenomenal sales success of the A321neo, could Airbus emerge from the crisis in a stronger position vis-à-vis its chief competitor?
 

Join us as Aviation Week editors delve into the details.

Could the U.S. Military Lose a War to China or Russia?

June 19

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

 

Christian Brose, a former majority director of the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee and author of the provocative book “The Kill Chain: Defending America in the Future of High-Tech Warfare,” joins Aviation Week editors to discuss America’s failure to pursue advanced technologies needed to maintain its military edge. The U.S. is now reaching for new networking tools that would allow its joint force to fight as one. But can the Pentagon retool fast enough to match China and Russia?

5G: A Threat To Aviation Or The Future?

June 12

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

 

The U.S. has found itself in bind after bind over the issue of 5G networks. It needs faster, secure communication networks. But a recent FCC decision to allow Ligado Networks to build an L-band ground-based 5G cellular networks is under fire from industry groups, airline pilots and even the Pentagon over the potential for its signals to disrupt GPS devices.

 

Ligado Networks CEO Doug Smith will join us to discuss how Ligado’s 5G network will benefit the U.S. aviation industry. And we’ll want to know how it can do so without harming the efficacy of GPS - the world’s most ubiquitous positioning, navigation and timing satellite.

Airbus, Boeing And Embraer: Flight Paths Forward

June 5

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

 

The drastic effects of COVID-19 on aircraft demand have been well reported. But what is the long-term structural impact on airline networks, and how does that change which type of aircraft will be in demand when better times return? With Boeing’s NMA dead for now, what key product decisions will air framers face to remain competitive in the long run? And can Embraer survive on its own?

 

London-based aerospace analyst Sash Tusa joins Aviation Week editors to discuss the paths forward for commercial aerospace.

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.
