According to industry reports, the global Installed base of aircraft is expected to grow from 19000 in 2007 to 28000 in 2017. In India alone, the Aerospace Industry is believed to require a staggering investment of between USD 200 to 300 billion over 2009-2034 to leverage its full potential.
To unlock its growth promise, the Indian Aerospace Industry would require not just a good ecosystem comprising the industry and the academia, but also very high quality talent pool that is capable of driving increasingly larger programmes through global collaboration. This requires mastery over tools and a great awareness of leading edge issues in this area.
The expectations from an aircraft is changing over time and it not enough to say it should be a safe flying machine capable of providing reasonable comfort - for example, today's aircraft should be more and more fuel efficient, provide better flying experience and be easy to operate and maintain.
As a market driven trend that makes the job of aerospace engineer even more challenging, the need is to develop aircraft in increasingly reduced development time. In this conference we would debate on the state of the Aerospace Industry in India, its engineering imperatives and what the various opportunities within this sector pertaining to R&D, Industry Best Practices, Regulatory and Commercial, etc. With an exposition coinciding with this conference, SAEISS hopes for a great confluence of Aerospace professionals.
