Working and Travelling on Aircraft program

The competing need to provide airline passengers with a comfortable yet economical travel experience is a primary driver for the development of new aircraft flight deck and cabin technologies. The Working and Travelling on Aircraft (WTA) program applies cutting-edge research, cross-disciplinary expertise and state-of-the-art facilities to accelerate the development of new cabins, environmental controls and avionics along the path to commercialization and market acceptance.

Using a holistic approach, the WTA program draws from its diverse knowledge base in environmental controls, vibration, acoustics, avionics, human factors and physiology to enable clients to advance the design, fabrication and testing of innovative new aerospace products that will improve passenger comfort, safety and enroute efficiency. In doing so, the program works to strengthen the Canadian supply chain and enhance its market share in an expanding global market for cabin and flight deck technologies.
