The spaceflight segment of the module identifies the current spaceflight operators for satellite launches and space tourism. There are different risks to the uninvolved public to that of those on board a spacecraft, and these are detailed.
The module presents the other threats to aviation from spaceflight activities including environmental effects, space debris (and unplanned re-entry of spacecraft parts) and also looks at space training for tourists.
The unmanned air systems segment focuses on the emerging drone market and flying taxis that will directly impact uninvolved public on the ground and air traffic around cities.
Who is it for?
The course is for those who want to learn how the aviation industry is being affected by the introduction of drones and flying taxis or space launches (and re-entry).
Modules will run from 09:00-17:00 on the first two days and from 09:00-13:00 on the final day.
The module will be delivered online.
You will gain an understanding of the risks and issues concerning the novel and complex emerging industry that is spaceflight and unmanned air systems (drones and flying taxis).
