On the 8th of July 2020, the H2020 project SAFELAND (SAFE LANDing through enhanced ground support), was kicked off together with #SESARJU, #DeepBlue and other 8 Consortium members.
The main aim of SAFELAND is to create a valuable solution for supporting flight and landing of aircraft operated by a single pilot, due to partial or total incapacitation of the pilot. During its 30-month duration, the project will investigate the interaction of the air traffic controller with onboard automation and/or a ground-based pilot operating through a remote cockpit position to manage the flight.
The project will develop a real-time cockpit simulator, a control work position, a ground cockpit simulator, and a simulated airline operation control centre.
The SAFELAND Consortium comprises partners from all over Europe: Deep Blue, EuroUSC Italia, AIRHOLDING, DLR, EASN-TIS, EUROCONTROL, EUI, Luftfartsverket, Swiss International Air Lines.
Stakeholders will also benefit from the feedback provided by an external independent advisory board. The board will include technical, safety, legal, operational, human performance, security, cybersecurity, and economical experts.
