XARIA YOU CAN FLY
When it comes to training professionals in the aviation sector and launching them into a profitable career, there is no one-size-fits-all solution.
That is why we, at Xaria, organise this important event every year, which brings together students interested in learning about the professions and how to enter the aviation sector with companies in the sector and airlines.
XARIA works to make entering the job market more accessible and easier for those with a passion for flying and aviation.
XARIA WOMEN IN FLIGHT
XARIA is committed to projects to increase the inclusion of women in the aviation industry. Today, women make up only 5% of professional pilots worldwide. The aviation industry still does not attract enough women.
It is important to work on implementing their presence not for reasons of social equality but to ensure that aviation has talented people.
The aim of this project is the definition of a protocol, the first proposed in Italy, for people with disabilities. The protocol will allow, in accordance with and in full compliance with EASA procedures and regulations, the possibility and manner of carrying out the piloting operations that may be allowed to persons with motor disabilities.
At the same time, and where applicable, define the criteria for the acceptability of any aids necessary for the achievement of Class 2 psychophysical fitness and also those of EASA Class 1 without compromising the flight safety levels currently recorded at European level.
Through research, Xaria allows the discovery of solutions to break down the barriers of disabilities related to piloting and flight, contributing to the simplification of procedures related to medical assessment by the bodies and doctors in charge. The new European legislation on maintenance, for example, the technological development of airplanes with increasingly electronically assisted controls and less and less mechanical (e.g. electronic joysticks and pedals) together with the incredible successes achieved by mechatronic engineering in prosthetics, they allow us today not only to adapt aircraft and allow disabled people to fly an airplane, but allow us to make the training of people with physical disabilities less problematic by making them think.
The support and assistance that we can give today to a person working in the aeronautical sector goes well beyond the even useful work of raising public awareness.
