FAVIT main objective is to deliver a set of knowledge-based proposals for the improvement of aerospace standards and guidelines for the system suppliers and aircraft manufacturers. FAVIT will analyse the current aerospace standards and guidelines to identify how the design and verification processes can be enhanced to accelerate the processes using the state-of-the-art technologies based in virtual testing.
FAVIT Project aims to become the tool for Clean Sky 2 to obtain this complete and accurate feasibility analysis of innovative practices in virtual testing methods for aircraft certification contributing to an innovative future framework of the aerospace standards in Europe. The methodology for the development of this study will include interaction with main stakeholders from the industry and the relevant certification authorities, as well as dissemination events to promote projects results.
Clean Sky is the largest European research programme developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions and noise levels produced by aircraft. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, Clean Sky contributes to strengthening European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness.

To analyse the existing European certification and standards

used at aircraft certification: study of the guidelines provided by the standardization groups and certification authorities for certification of new generation aircrafts will be done.

To analyse the current state-of-the-art of virtual testing

methods and the challenges related to verification process.

To contact with the main actors in the aeronautical sector

to analyse the methods used currently and how the new technologies can improve the certification process.

To develop a methodology and a guide

for best practices for virtual testing oriented to enhance certification process for system suppliers and aircraft manufacturers.

To inform certification authorities, research centres and air transport stakeholders

about the proposed enhancements for aerospace standards regarding virtual testing and generate a proposal for enhancement of aerospace standards.

To contribute for a democratization of the aerospace industry

generating new more safety processes but more accessible to SMEs, using MBSE and virtual testing.
