Innovation and testing are crucial components of the aviation industry.
They ensure that aircraft are safe and reliable before they are put into service, and that they meet the necessary regulatory standards. Recently, a LinkedIn post by Sam Thompson, CEO & CTO of Aura Aerospace, shed light on the importance of sharing test failures for the safety of the general public.
In his post, Thompson shared a video of a ground test of Aura Aerospace’s EVTOL aircraft models. He also described in detail how the aircraft experienced a component failure during these ground tests and disclosed details of the components and configuration. While this may seem like a negative development, Thompson’s post emphasizes the importance of sharing this type of information for the betterment of the industry as a whole.
