Ed DiCampli, HAI’s COO; Harold Summers, director of flight operations & technical services; and Brian Haggerty, deputy director of flight operations & technical services, took part in the biannual Technical Specialists’ Meeting on Airworthiness, Condition Based Maintenance (CBM), and Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS) in Huntsville, Alabama, Feb. 9-11.
The meeting, sponsored by The Redstone Chapter of the American Helicopter Society (AHS) International and HAI, presented applicable technologies that are new to continued airworthiness, current and potential processes, and hardware required for military and civil aircraft airworthiness.
DiCampli was the session chair for the civil half of the event. “The Specialist meeting is a great opportunity for engineers, researchers, regulators, OEMs, operators, and customers to come together to share requirements, research, and methodologies to improve the safety of the aircraft we fly,” said DiCampli.
HAI works closely with the FAA’s Technical Center through a research grant to advance HUMS and develop processes to make the technology more robust and mainstream.
