We are very happy to announce that Damian Hischier will join the Dufour Aerospace team as Chief Test Pilot and Head of Certification. Damian is one of the few civilian class 1 test pilots who has flown as many as 138 different types of aircraft from gliders to airliners, including 15 first flights of prototypes. He has broad experience test flying electric aircraft, including SolarStratus, and was heavily involved in certifying many other aircraft.
Damian is an accomplished engineer/project manager/test pilot with a successful track record in cross-functional roles and broad scope programmes ensuring project goals are met. Damian keeps a close watch over new technology trends, and adapts proven business models to collaborative work environments.
As our Chief Test Pilot and Head of Certification, he will oversee the whole certification process of aEro 2 and future aircraft. He will be especially involved in the review of flight performance, aircraft design, evaluation and definition of the pilot aircraft interface, and the certification process. We are looking forward to work with Damian and welcome his broad experience into the Dufour Aerospace team to continue pushing the state of the art in electric VTOL technology.
