What we have

To procure and/or qualify new rotorcraft (systems)? More specifically:

  • Definition and/or management of military qualification projects for the introduction of modifications on the existing rotorcraft fleet?
  • Advice on the applicability and tailoring of regulations and procedures?
  • Execution of demonstration activities within a qualification project, such as analyses, laboratory tests or ground and flight tests?
  • Monitoring demonstration activities performed by other parties, assessment of related substantiation documents (compliance verification) and providing recommendations?

Wide knowledge of rotorcraft behaviour and its typical systems and structural properties; knowledge of airworthiness and performance standards and of rotorcraft flight operations. This enables NLR to support both civil and military operators and authorities in the process of procuring and/or qualifying new rotorcraft (systems). The process of airworthiness qualification is often also referred to as ‘certification’.
