SAFE LANDing through enhanced ground support
Pilots may become incapacitated during flight. Although a rare occurrence, pilot incapacitation, especially in a single-pilot aircraft, can present a significant risk. Incapacitation can result from various reasons, from gastrointestinal illnesses to death, a more extreme example.
The main aim of the EU-funded project, 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.
This community collects the scientific peer-reviewed publications generated in the frame of the SAFELAND project.
This project has received funding from the SESAR Joint Undertaking under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 890599.
