The Vertical Flight Society is hosting virtual technical sessions, workshops, presentations and interviews on timely and relevant topics in VTOL and eVTOL. These webinars are hosted either by VFS headquarters or by our chapters around the world. There are sponsorship opportunities for each of the webinars.  

May 24: Aeroacoustics, Additive Manufacturing & Rotor Icing - Successful R&D for Vertical Lift through Industrial & Academic Collaboration, hosted by the VFS Montreal-Ottawa Chapter
1200-1300 EDT/1100-1200 CDT/0900-1000 PDT/1600-1700 UTC
Introduction: Speakers:
Dr. Stéphane Moreau, Université de Sherbrooke

Dr. Éric Villeneuve, Université of Québec à Chicoutimi

Dr. Mathieu Brochu, McGill University

McGill University
Industries & Universities have a long history of collaboration in diverse fields of science. In Quebec and Ontario, the aerospace sector benefited from such a strong bond. Ideas became reality through scientific development leaded by academics that then was then introduced by industrial partners in new products and developments. The Montreal/Ottawa Chapter is proud to have three great researchers for this event that are leaders in their respective fields of research. The three of them are also very active in the Vertical Flight ecosystem through collaboration with many different industrials. This event will focus on three fields of research where successful collaboration between Industrial & Universities led to great results. First, Dr. Stephane Moreau from Université de Sherbrooke will present an overview of his research in aeroacoustics of rotating machines. Dr. Éric Villeneuve from Université of Québec à Chicoutimi will then follow with his work on icing and development of anti-icing/deicing technologies. Last speaker, Dr. Mathieu Brochu, will present advances in metallic Additive Manufacturing and powders.
