Role in HERA

Avio Aero will contribute to WP4, 2, 3, 5, 8 of the HERA proposal. Avio Aero would contribute by bringing its capability as an engine maker and linking these activities with the proposal under the Pillar HER-01 call Topic: HORIZON-JUCLEAN-AVIATION-2022-01-HER-01: Multi-MW hybrid-electric propulsion system for Regional Aircraft, to ensure the link within the TRA-01 topic.
As the engine maker established capabilities, Avio Aero will contribute to the WP2 and WP4 with task related to the definition of the interfaces between the main propulsion system components and the A/C. Moreover, Avio Aero will contribute to the Thermal Management interface, Electrical Distribution interface, and H2 Power source interface (WP3). The certification will be one of the key element within the disruptive configuration on the HER call topic, therefore Avio Aero will play a role in the definition of the certification gaps in order to achieve the new certification standard (WP2,5,8).
