The ACP Network holds its first event

On 21 March 2023, in conjunction with Cranfield University, the ACP hosted its first Network event in the University’s Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC) and Digital Aviation Research and Technology Centre (DARTeC). Seven schools attended and we had a full house of 97 school members plus two representatives of GKN Aerospace (an ACP supporting company) and Dr Smith, ACP Chairman.

Areas visited included: the AIRC Hangar; the Centre’s open laboratory, research projects, aircraft flight simulator, and robotics station. And in DARTeC: the University’s Boeing 737 (inside and out, including the flight deck); the Passenger Experience Laboratory; the Aircraft Hangar of the Future, and the Digital Aircraft Maintenance Laboratory. Our sincere thanks go to Professor Dame Helen Atkinson DBE, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing, and her Departmental and Events Teams.
