20 July 2021

On Friday, the 16th of July, as part of the V International Scientific and Technical Conference ICASSE 2021, a round table was held on the topic “Second generation supersonic commercial aircraft: markets, appearance, certification”.

Experts from leading organizations, together with Moscow Aviation Institute included in the consortium of the WCRC "Supersonic": the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after N.E. Zhukovsky, Central Institute of Aviation Motors named after P.I. Baranov, were invited to attend the round table.

The focus was made on issues related to the supersonic aviation market, the preliminary appearance of a supersonic commercial aircraft, the main take-off and landing and flight performance, the choice of the power plant, the list of risks affecting the formation of the aircraft layout in terms of airworthiness standards, as well as noise and engine emission standards for the future until 2037 and further at the round table.

As the reports were presented, lively discussion took place on such topics as the place of supersonic aviation, aircraft family, specification, the appearance of the aircraft, taking into account the current certification rules.

– It is no coincidence that today we reached to touch upon those issues that are seldom mentioned at such events. As it might be observed after the discussion, all the topics that we covered at the round table are of concern to the consortium participants. We need to carry out deeper research in these areas. We are ready to continue to share the results of our work, to discuss, to make joint decisions with the consortium members, – said Dmitry Strelets, the head of MAI NI0-101.

The round table became the final event of the 5th International Conference on Aerospace System Science and Engineering (ICASSE 2021), which was held by Moscow Aviation Institute together with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and brought together more than 100 participants.
