Leonardo is an anchor tenant at the new aerospace centre iAero, located next to the company’s site in Yeovil, Somerset – the ‘Home of British Helicopters’. This tenancy highlights the company’s continued commitment to aerospace innovation in the region and beyond.
A Leonardo team has now taken residence in the modern innovation hub with a primary focus on aircraft autonomy, electrical systems, and sustainable VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) technologies.
The team will address aircraft autonomy and the technologies being explored will consider the reduction of an aircrew’s workload through a variety of ways, such as sub-system health management and higher function autopilot capabilities, like sense and avoid.
Additionally, the team will explore the ability to extend the use of high power high voltage electrical systems in future rotorcraft, and examine how the carbon footprint can be reduced through the utilisation of new materials, alternative fuels, and the integration design processes of rotorcraft amongst many other ways of exploration.
The tenancy further stimulates, significant investment and higher-value jobs within Somerset. The freedom to explore, experiment, and engineer at the centre will ensure the region remains at the cutting-edge of innovative flight technologies.
The centre not only cements further that Somerset and indeed Yeovil are at the heart of world leading innovation within British aerospace but it will ensure this legacy continues through the future opportunities and long term prospects it will provide to the younger generation
