London, United Kingdom, September 27, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- There is less than 2 weeks left until the 8th Annual Military Flight Training Conference, which will commence on October 9-10, 2019 in London. The event will be a great opportunity to take part in front-line discussions with a view to maximising military flight training capabilities for the fast-jet, fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft of the 21st century, addressing key updates and critical issues surrounding the topic of Military Flight Training.
This year, SMi is pleased to have Diamond Aircraft and Leonardo as sponsors, along with expert speakers from many countries including Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Sweden, UK, and USA.
SMi Group caught up with Mr. Martin Scherrer, the Head of Flight Operations at Diamond Aircraft to discuss his role, current projects, future outlook and the upcoming conference.
Snapshot of Martin’s interview:
What do you see are the key challenges in the flight training market? More budget constraints while assets need to keep up with technology innovation
“Requirements for training aircraft are increasing with capabilities of fighter aircraft, but budgets on the other hand are getting compromised. Although the average fleet age is pretty high, upgrades (e.g. avionics) have been the only option for certain clients as new aircraft are simply too expensive. That’s why Diamond has developed a state-of-the art basic trainer that complies with modern flight training requirements at a competitive price tag.”
Where do you see the market in the next 3 years?
"With increasing budgetary constraints, the market is certainly moving to more cost-efficient training platforms. As most of the current basic trainers are approaching their service lifetime, we will see a strong competition over the next years, where operating cost will be of high priority. Service Providers might also play an important role, as certain customers prefer to pay for their hours instead of acquiring and owning the aircraft, in order to have more precise budgetary planning..."
