Soar or Die!

The real reason more kids don’t go into aviation

What keeps our future pilots firmly planted on Earth?

by

Ms. Syd Blue

Commercial Pilot, Author,

Owner of an aerial surveillance company protecting national security assets and infrastructure from California to Texas

————————————————-

What’s the #1 thing kids ask about flying? People often think money is the biggest factor keeping kids from going into aviation, but there is also another major deterrent. Kids contact me from my YouTube channel (YouTube.com/FlyGirlFlyGirl) which has had 250,000 views and ask me questions. Can you guess the thing they want to know the most? You may be surprised.

 

It’s why I wrote “FlyGirl,” a novel read in middle schools and featured at the FAA library. A major trend in kids of this generation, I also hear this question when I speak to schools. Helping kids overcome obstacles such as this starts with inspiring them with our future in the sky and space. Novels with science elements pique interest in astronomy, aviation and science– I’ve heard from kids who decided to go on a STEM path (bioengineering, piloting, etc.) after reading “Circle” or “FlyGirl.” It might have been the bioengineered seal-skin jet (don’t worry, no animals were harmed!) or the X planes inspired by Edwards AFB as I was flying through their airspace doing aerial surveillance. In “Circle,” an extraterrestrial girl crashes into our world and has to get home with the one thing her civilization needs to survive. (The kids love the strange material her jet is made out of.) Please see SydBlue.com for more info.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0615750753/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vapi_taft_p1_i1

And “FlyGirl” is about a 16-year-old girl who learns to fly the hard way and in the process becomes Pilot-in-Command of her life.

————————————————-

Syd Blue is a commercial pilot who owned an aerial surveillance company protecting national security assets and infrastructure from California to Texas.

 

As Chief Pilot, she flew low through practice war zones such as Camp Pendleton, timed flights through testing sites such as Edwards AFB and cut across Final Approaches such as Las Vegas McCarran, all to safeguard the country.

 

Her 2 tween novels made Amazon’s top 1% and are read in middle schools along with her STEM curriculum.

 

Syd Blue has written, edited and produced for a TV station, production companies, book publishers and national magazines. She has had over 40 articles published and she supervised writing staffs at magazines and a news service. She also produced an award-winning documentary, local TV shows, commercials and short films.

 

Two of her movies are in development with producers who have 1.2B at the box office.

 

“I’ve been on a mission to encourage kids to learn to fly because the journey itself is so empowering!”

Challenges and opportunities for Hypersonic Flight

by

Dr. Mark J. Lewis

Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics

Executive Director, Emerging Technologies Institute

Hypersonic flight is a very exciting and fast-developing aerospace field. Please join us and learn more from the leading top expert and the AIAA Honorary Fellow, Dr. Mark Lewis!

Dr. Mark J. Lewis

Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics,

Executive Director, Emerging Technologies Institute

Dr. Mark J. Lewis is the Executive Director of the National Defense Industrial Association’s Emerging Technologies Institute (ETI), a non-partisan research center focused on technologies that are critical to the future of national defense. ETI provides research and analyses to inform the development and integration of emerging technologies into the defense industrial base.

Prior to this position, Dr. Lewis was the Director of Defense Research & Engineering in the Department of Defense (DoD), overseeing technology modernization for all Services and DoD Agencies, as well as the acting Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Research & Engineering. In that role, he was the Pentagon’s senior-most scientist, overseeing an organization with a $17B annual budget that includes DARPA, the Missile Defense Agency, the Defense Innovation Unit, the Space Development Agency, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC), and the Department’s basic and applied research portfolio.

From 2012 to 2019, Dr. Lewis was the Director of the Science and Technology Policy Institute, an FFRDC that supported the Executive Office of the President and other Executive Branch agencies in the formulation of national science and technology policy. Dr. Lewis is a professor emeritus at the University of Maryland, where he served as the Willis Young, Jr., Professor and Chair of the Department of Aerospace Engineering until 2012. A faculty member at Maryland for 25 years, Dr. Lewis taught and conducted basic and applied research in the fields of hypersonic aerodynamics, advanced propulsion, and space vehicle design and optimization. Best known for his work in hypersonics, Dr. Lewis’s research has spanned the aerospace flight spectrum from the analysis of conventional jet engines to entry into planetary atmospheres. From 2004 to 2008, Dr. Lewis was the Chief Scientist of the U.S. Air Force, the principal scientific adviser to the Chief of Staff and Secretary of the Air Force. As the longest-serving Chief Scientist in Air Force history, his primary focus included hypersonics, space launch, energy, sustainment, advanced propulsion, basic research, and workforce development. From 2010 to 2011, he was President of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the world’s premiere aerospace professional society

Dr. Lewis attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he received his Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Bachelor of Science in Earth and Planetary Science (1984), and Master of Science (1985) and Doctor of Science (1988) in Aeronautics and Astronautics. He is the author of more than 340 publications and has been an adviser to more than 70 graduate students. In addition, he has served on various boards for NASA and the DoD, including two terms on the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board.

A recipient of the USAF Exemplary, Meritorious, and Exceptional Civilian Service Awards, and of the Secretary of Defense Outstanding Public Service Award, Dr. Lewis was also the 1994 AIAA National Capital Young Scientist/Engineer of the Year; received the IECEC/AIAA Lifetime Achievement Award, the AIAA Dryden Lectureship Award, and the AFA Theodore von Karman Award; and is an Aviation Week and Space Technology Laureate. He is a member of the International Academy of Astronautics, a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society, and an Honorary Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.

Using Simulation to Help Aviation Industry Achieve Sustainability Goals

 

The Aviation Industry is committed to the net Zero-Carbon Emissions by 20501. This is only achievable when aircraft integrators, engine manufacturers, and suppliers work together towards more sustainable technologies and build the ecosystem around them. A combination of measures such as sustainable aviation fuel (SAFs), alternate propulsion designs (electric, hybrid or hydrogen propulsion) and operational and infrastructure improvements (retrofitting designs, aerodynamic improvements, weight reduction methods) and adoptions will contribute to achieving this objective. To meet this timeline, manufacturers must accelerate research on airframe designs and new propulsion methods. Simulation can help them not only expand their design space but also optimize their designs faster and, in a cost-effective manner.

 

During this presentation, a variety of physics-based simulation methods and capabilities will be discussed that can support design, development and testing of these sustainable technologies in a virtual environment and can thus accelerate the time to market which is critical as governments and industries rush to meet the 2050 net-zero carbon goals.
