Airliners typically went from program launch to airline service in four years during the 1960s. Today, development of new airliners takes about twice as long.
Our panel and audience will discuss possible causes and remedies, including use and misuse of CAD and other modern tools, competitive pressure or lack thereof, management techniques, and even office layouts.
Panelists include Jim Albaugh, past CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and incoming president of AIAA; Martin Waide, a mechanical-engineering veteran whose experience in motor racing and unmanned aircraft spans six decades; and Tad McGeer, whose 25-year career in unmanned aircraft includes founding both Insitu and Aerovel.
This event is free to attend.
