WEC’s Managing Director Richard Smith has been selected to be a member of the ATI Whole Aircraft Strategy Specialist Advisory Group. The group, which met for the first time this week, has a remit to act as a forum for the whole aircraft community, covering areas including whole aircraft modelling, architectures, integration, safety and certification, and the air vehicle within the transport system.
Richard said: "I am pleased to be able to contribute to the Whole Aircraft group alongside representatives of the major OEMs and primes. Our inclusion is a reflection of WEC’s breadth of expertise in the development of aircraft systems and integration, testing and certification at aircraft level. It’s important that the UK’s capability to operate at the whole aircraft level is maintained and developed and we value the opportunity to bring the benefit of our experience to bear in influencing the future UK aerospace strategy."
