I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is not ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature.

Another exciting one for me as it resonates with my desire to have the freedom through travel, all the while, to #ManageMyBusiness #WorkFromWherever I have for too long, been as a ship anchored, safely in Port. This is not what this ship was made for - I yearn to set sail, to explore the world. The time is near, the winds of change favourable. I have a few projects I’m busy with presently and I’m pregnant with promise and ambition. I am excited, committed, determined to tick off every item on my #BucketList, among the items - to #Managemybusiness #WorkFromWherever #exploreItaly, most of all, committed to move forward into the fullness of my raison d’être. Professionally trained as an attorney, practicing family, contract and insurance law, on a part-time basis, allowing me to pick and choose my clients and cases. I am also a business owner and manager of a SCUBA diving training and charter company, a qualified SCUBA diver instructor, coach and mentor to dive professional trainees. Personally, I am a 42 year old woman, living and working in a beautiful corner of the world, at the edge of the Garden Route, in a little town called Mossel Bay, South Africa for 10 years. I’m married 9 years and I have a 17 year old son. I also have two adult step-daughters and two young (step) grand-daughters. But who is Leanne Walmsley, at her core? I am a dreamer and I dream big dreams. I am an extrovert, not shy to shine, unafraid to lead. I have entrepreneurial vision but pragmatism and circumstance have made for very practical decisions over the last two decades, leaving my dreams shelved, to gather only dust. I have it settled deep within my spirit, the desire to impact lives, in a beneficial way, and to do so, not just at home, but far and wide.
PilotsTogether is a UK registered charity set up by current pilots and supporters, based in the UK. Its express aim is to ensure that pilots made redundant from UK-based airlines remain a part of our community. Pilots have never faced this level of disruption and uncertainty. There is also a common misconception that all pilots are wealthy and don’t need help. We want to make sure that they are supported. PilotsTogether's mission is to: Help them continue to pay back training loans and bills, without suffering economic hardship. Ensure that they don’t suffer on their own, that they have someone with whom they can talk. To help retain the skills they have spent so much in gaining, and learn new ones for the future and lastly to make sure they remain part of our aviation family. As PilotsTogethers we will provide financial support to formerly employed UK pilots who are facing economic difficulties. With formerly employed pilots now facing uncertain futures, many saddled with significant training debts, we will allocate donations to those who need it most so they can get through this. We will provide a range of practical support, advice and assistance to formerly employed UK pilots to help them navigate through challenges faced. This includes access to job opportunities, sim access and training assistance, career guidance and job application advice. We will provide mental health and wellbeing support to formerly employed UK pilots who need it. Wellbeing sessions and individual guidance will be provided through our network of peers and professional experts. We will make sure that these pilots continue to feel connected to their community and know that they aren’t alone. We will also raise awareness of the profession and make sure it continues to be an attractive career path for the next generation. It is critical that this crisis doesn’t deter future pilots from pursuing their dreams – and that we ensure that people from underrepresented groups aren’t deterred by the high financial barriers to entry.

MD Helicopters, Inc., is a leading manufacturer of commercial, military, law enforcement and air-rescue helicopters. MD Helicopters, Inc. is building upon a tradition of excellence that is unmatched in the aerospace industry. Our high-performance helicopters have long been the products of choice for discriminating buyers. Our family of helicopters - the MD 500® series helicopters, MD 600N® helicopter and MD Explorer® helicopter - is synonymous with the world's best rotorcraft. We offer the best-quality, best-value helicopters in the world; provide state-of-the-art technology to enhance operator value; offer total support of our products wherever and whenever it's needed; and keep adapting our organization and the way we do business to make sure we continue to build upon that tradition of excellence and meet our customer’s high expectations for quality, service and support. MD Helicopters traces its roots back more than 50 years to when Hughes Tool Company, Aircraft Division first started to develop “light helicopters” in 1955. After years of successfully manufacturing such models as the Hughes 269, 300, 500 and 530F for civil use and TH-55 Osage, OH-6 Cayuse and highly successful AH 64-Apache, Hughes sold its helicopters business to McDonnell Douglas in 1984. For the most part, McDonnell Douglas stayed true to the original Hughes designs and nomenclatures. In 1997, McDonnell Douglas merged with Boeing to become the Boeing Company. In 1999, Boeing sold the former MD commercial helicopter lines to MD Helicopter Holdings Inc., an indirect subsidiary of the Dutch company, RDM Holding Inc. Included in the sale were the MD 500E and MD 530F single-engine helicopters with conventional tail rotors, the MD 520N and MD 600N single-engine helicopters with the Boeing exclusive NOTAR® no tail rotor system for anti-torque and directional control, and the MD Explorer series of twin-engine, eight-place helicopters. Boeing maintained the AH-64 line of helicopters, and rights to the NOTAR system. MD Helicopters Holdings Inc. was acquired in July, 2005 by Patriarch Partners, LLC, an investment fund. The company was recapitalized as an independent company, MD Helicopters, Inc. MD Helicopters is based in Mesa, Arizona and the current product line includes the MD 500E, MD 530F, MD 520N, MD 600N and the MD Explorer. MD Helicopters, Inc. has enjoyed a successful turn around going from as few as 7 helicopters manufactured in 2005 to 52 in 2008. In 2009-2010 the outlook for all helicopter manufacturers softened with the worldwide economy, but the company is confident of continued growth in 2011 and beyond. With more than 2500 aircraft currently in use around the world, MD Helicopters is a substantial company by any measure. Fleet users include the Korean Armed Forces, US Special Operations, Japanese Self Defense Forces, Jordanian Armed Forces, Turkish National Police, Houston Police, Columbus Police, CALSTAR, Argentina Armed Forces, the Italian government, the Finnish Armed Forces and many others. Internally the company is focused on internal process improvements, supply chain product flow, and fuselage ramp-up. There has been a significant emphasis on the sales of spares and the repair and overhaul business. Part sales are also showing a significant increase in orders per month. Through all the changes over the years, MD Helicopters has enjoyed an almost cult-like status with its customers and employees. It is viewed as a small private company with lots of heart and soul capable of delivering extremely good products. MD Helicopters are known for their speed, strength and ability to fly “hot and high.” MD Helicopters will renew its focus to differentiate itself from other Helicopter manufacturers while filling the needs of our operators, regardless of market segment. Our marketing goal is to position MD Helicopters as the “First Choice” manufacturer throughout the world. Looking at the helicopter marketplace and planning our place in industry growth for 2011 and beyond is a tremendous challenge with potential for tremendous opportunity. We can think of no better place to begin the journey than right where we are: “MD Helicopters, American Pride Rising to New Heights.”
Today, our team is made up of more than 700 passionate engineers, experts, and leaders, all focused on bringing our pioneering vision to life. We’re developing a world-class manufacturing facility in Marina, CA and have offices and workshops in Santa Cruz, San Carlos, Washington, D.C., and Munich, Germany. In the beginning, day and night, a small team of seven engineers worked out of “The Barn,” our workshop in the mountains above Santa Cruz. We explored the frontiers of technologies like electric motors, flight software, and lithium-ion batteries — engineering almost every component from the ground up. Beginning in 2012, Joby was selected to collaborate with NASA on several groundbreaking electric flight projects, including the X-57 and LEAPTech. After many years of subscale testing and analysis, we arrived at our current configuration and flew this subscale prototype for the first time. Our first full-scale prototype took to the skies in 2017. In 2019, our first production prototype began a rigorous flight testing program. In 2020, we agreed to a "G-1" certification basis for our aircraft with the FAA, laying a clear path to certifying our aircraft for commercial flights. The U.S. Air Force also granted its first ever eVTOL airworthiness approval to Joby as part of its Agility Prime program. With more than 1,000 test flights behind us, we're looking ahead to breaking ground on our first large-scale manufacturing facility later this year, certifying our aircraft in 2023, and starting commercial operations in 2024.
Giovanni Nicelli Airport is located in the prestigious setting of Lido of Venice, in the northern part of the island just ten minutes by boat from the city center. The air terminal, an example of perfectly preserved architecture, started in 1930s and solemnly inaugurated on 4 February 1935, is the oldest trading post in Italy. In 2014 the airport was included in the ranking of the ten most beautiful in the world by the BBC edited by Jonathan Glancey. Equipped with elegant interior spaces and large gardens and outdoor terraces, it is the ideal location for meetings and conferences, private dinners and events, exclusive parties, art exhibitions and film shoots. In 1915, with Italy's entry into the war against the Central Empires, the priceless artistic heritage of Venice was exposed to bombing by Austrian aircraft. The danger did not leave the French government indifferent, which proposed sending some fighters to protect the city. The offer was accepted by our staff and on 13 August of the same year, 36 men commanded by pilot captain Michel de Chalonge, left Lyon for the lagoon city who conducted 63 effective actions on strategic objectives. The initial deployment near Mestre proved unsuitable for timely interception of enemy aircraft before their arrival on the lagoon, thus making it necessary to search for a new base. With an original choice, the Navy Command, in charge of the Venetian stronghold, decided to create an airfield from the parade ground of the Fort of S. Nicolò al Lido. The space, enlarged with the demolition of some smaller buildings, demonstrated the feasibility of the project and on December 1st, after three months of work, the French squadron moved to the new headquarters, thus marking the birth of the Lidense airport, the current Nicelli. The choice was a happy one. The captain and his pilots, housed in the Hotel Paradiso, were often at the center of a worldly interest also favored by the excellent cuisine ensured by the four accompanying chefs. The department had illustrious visitors such as the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII, the writer Celine, and an exceptional godmother, the charming Baroness Nicola Winspeare Guicciardi. Gabriele D’Annunzio will become a regular of the place while the high Venetian aristocracy will open up more and more to French pilots. The presence of Gabriele d'Annunzio at the Lido, who moved from the famous Casetta Rossa on the Grand Canal in Via Lepanto 24, to participate in the risky events of the Adriatic war, represents a historical fact not without charm which was not overlooked by the French aviators who knew the artistic and worldly successes of the poet in their country. A singular proof of this admiration can be found in an image of a Spad plane on the Lido field with the inscription “Perhaps that yes perhaps that no”, the title of a famous work by the poet. During his life in Lidense D'Annunzio also confirmed himself as a creative in the field of military art, contributing in an original and effective way to the daring and insidious guerrilla warfare to be conducted at sea and in the air which Tahon di Revel himself had announced. The presence of D'Annunzio on the Lido field, the current Nicelli, was assiduous and creative. Commander of a Caproni squadron he experimented for the first time in Italy with the use of land torpedo bombers until the needs of the war required the full use of the unit on the land front. The Air Torpedo Squadron, created to emulate the legendary strikes from the air landed by the MAS flotilla, will therefore become a bombing unit, also based at the Lido airport, reinforced with SIA 9B aircraft. In October, Commander D'Annunzio will change her name and motto: he will call her S. Marco and for the motto he will abandon the Latin of "sufficit animus" for the Venetian word of "tu con nu nu con ti".

The Durban Airport opened in 1951 and carried the name Louis Botha Airport until 1994 – the year of the first democratic election held in South Africa. This election was won by the ANC and Nelson Mandela was elected the president of South Africa. This brought about many changes including the name Louis Botha Airport. It was known as Durban International Airport from 1994 onwards. The Durban airport saw a large volume of domestic flights but not as many international flights as the runway was too short for larger aircrafts to land. Due to this factor, Durban international Airport lost a lot of international flights. This was one of the major reasons for the change of location and upgrade that occurred in 2010. All operations seized at Durban International Airport and King Shaka International Airport, (located 60km north of Durban) became the primary airport servicing Durban. It was much larger and had a longer runway which could accommodate larger aircraft. Closely located near Durban beaches and a host of hotels in Durban, King Shaka International Airport is positioned ideally to make for a comfortable travel experience.

Cape Town Airport is located in Matroosfontein, approximately 12 miles (20 km) south-east from Cape Town city centre. Cape Town Airport has domestic and international terminals linked by a common Central Terminal were all check-in takes place, so it can be considered as a single terminal.
Johannesburg - OR Tambo International Airport was formerly known as Johannesburg International Airport and prior to that was called Jan Smuts Airport. The airport was renamed in 2006 to honour the memory of one of South Africa's national heroes and icons, Oliver Reginald Tambo. An anti-apartheid politician and central figure in the African National Congress (ANC), Tambo served a term as president of South Africa. Johannesburg - OR Tambo International Airport, IATA Code: JNB and often shortened to ORTIA, lies 5,558 ft / 1,694 m above sea level in the Johannesburg suburb of Kempton Park, 23 km east of Johannesburg city centre and 46km south of Pretoria. Situated in Gauteng, the airport is ideally situated in the heart of South Africa's commercial and industrial hub and has excellent road infrastructure linking it to Johannesburg, Pretoria and the national road network. The Gautrain rapid rail system has had its first section opened, linking the airport with Sandton, and is being extended to Johannesburg and Pretoria. Johannesburg - OR Tambo International Airport is South Africa's principal airport, with more than 50 percent of the country's air passengers passing through the airport. OR Tambo Airport services airlines from all five continents and plays a vital role in serving the local. regional, intra- and inter-continental air transport needs of South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. It is the biggest and busiest airport in Africa. Major upgrades and expansion have been recently completed at the airport, enabling it to handle 19 million passengers a year. The motor car plays an important role in the lives of many South Africans and OR Tambo Airport now boasts a total of 11,500 parking bays. These range from on-airport, multi-storey parkades and shaded parking to long-term off-airport facilities, with free shuttle services offered to the terminals. The 2 runways at the airport have been built longer then most airports due the altitude being 1,700 metres above sea level, making them some of the longest runways in the world. The air is more rarified and provides less air friction to assist deceleration on approach and landing and less lift on take-off. It as one of only 4 airports in the world that fly scheduled non-stop services to all 6 inhabited conitents, the others being Abu-Dhabi, Doha and Dubai.
Cuneo Airport is easy to reach from Piedmont and Liguria regions due to its very favourable geographic location and for being in the heart of the productive area and touristic region. Surrounded by the crow of the Alps, it's in a very special and beautiful position. Cuneo Levaldigi Airport has its historical roots at the end of Twenties, when in 1929 was born the Airport “Campo d’Aviazione di Fortuna”, with a surface of 75000 m2 and a grass runway. After the war the grounds were managed by the local famers until 1960 when the Aeroclub Provincia Granda got the permission to build the new airport. On October 1962, was born GEAC, the managing company of Cuneo Airport, due to a growing interest to develop the air traffic of the local institutions. The first actions of the new company are linked with a renewal program of expansion of the infrastructure and the runway. Since 1986 the Airport is officially open for the domestic commercial traffic by the Minister and since 1990 for the international traffic. In 1994 due to the upgrade of the fire brigade, aircraft up to 48 m are allowed to land. In 1997 a fire burnt most of the terminal, but in just one month the activity of the airport restarted. In 1998 GEAC spa started the executive project for the new terminal, who got finalized in 2004 with the inauguration of the present new Olimpica Torino – Cuneo Airport.
Edinburgh Airport is Scotland’s busiest airport, welcoming more than 14.7 million people through our doors in 2019. We’re also the 6th busiest airport in the UK. As the place Where Scotland Meets The World, we fly to more than 150 destinations and work with 40 airlines to welcome people to Scotland and take Scotland to the world. Directly employing around 750 staff with a further 7000 across the campus, Edinburgh Airport is owned by Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), a leading global, independent infrastructure investor. Edinburgh Airport hasn’t always looked the way it does today. We’ve been through some major milestones on the road to becoming the busiest commercial airport in Scotland. Here’s a quick tour of our history. Our story starts back in 1916 when the Turnhouse Aerodrome opened as a World War One military base. In 1918 the airfield became the RAF Turnhouse after the formation of the Royal Air Force. It wasn’t until the start of the Second World War that the first runway was built, after which the first commercial services launched in 1947. Fast forward to the 1970s and BAA takes control of Edinburgh Airport, with the first new terminal officially opened to the public by the Queen in 1977. In the decades to follow the airport continued to grow and develop, and in 2009 a Scottish Enterprise study revealed that the airport could boost Scotland’s economy by £867 million per year. In 2012 Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) took over ownership from the BAA. This lead to new routes, improved passenger facilities, and a multi-million-pound terminal expansion. Today, we’re the busiest airport in Scotland, flying to more than 150 destinations across the world.
Birmingham Airport has over 140 direct worldwide destinations, handles over 13 million passengers each year and is located in the heart of England! Minimising the impact of our operations has always been a priority for us. That's why we operate a range of procedures and schemes to ensure we're taking all practical steps to achieve this. Take a look at our Aircraft Noise pages to find out more about what we're doing. In 2016 we published our first Carbon Management Plan, which aimed to build on efforts to reduce our carbon emissions which have seen us achieve a 40% reduction since 2013. In early 2020, we began work on an updated high-level plan to reduce carbon emissions, but during the pandemic our priorities shifted to focus on immediate and direct carbon and energy reduction measures. Taking advantage of the unprecedented fall in traffic and passenger volumes, we examined our operations and infrastructure in detail, with the aim of eliminating as much carbon from our operations as possible. And we have been successful, reducing our emissions by approximately 1700 tonnes, or by 18%, in 2020/21, compared to the previous financial year. While we expect emissions to increase in line with passenger volumes as the recovery gets underway, we are determined that many of the measures we introduced in the pandemic will be extended in the long term, creating a more sustainable operation for the future. We're also fully engaged with the industry's efforts to decarbonise, supporting our partners in IATA, Sustainable Aviation and the Jet Zero Council to decouple the growth in aviation from the growth in emissions. This is being achieved through the development of carbon-efficient airport infrastructure, the introduction of fuel efficient operations, the drive for sustainable aviation fuels and the ultimate delivery of zero-emissions aircraft. We are committed to mitigating the negative impacts of operating an Airport in a densely populated region, but our ambitions go beyond this; we want to be a force for good by investing in the wellbeing of those communities impacted by our operations, many of which are in real need. Our ‘30-30-40’ policy targets investment into areas suffering from high levels of deprivation. We aim to ensure that 30% of all of our Community Investment, both direct and in kind, is directed towards east Birmingham, 30% towards north Solihull while the remaining 40% supports communities in other areas impacted by our operations. Air Quality in the area surrounding the Airport is affected by a wide range of emission sources, the most significant of which is road traffic pollution from local roads and the motorway network. However, Airport operations cause emissions which can also impact local air quality. Our aim is to ensure the Airport does not cause Air Quality emission exceedances in the region, and to work proactively to reduce emissions at the Airport.

Newcastle Airport witnessed a surge in passenger traffic in the first eight months of 2013, toppling Liverpool John Lennon Airport as the UK’s tenth busiest airport. The Newcastle Airport handled more than 3.11 million passengers from January to August 2013. The airport, located about 9.6km from Newcastle city centre, is owned by seven local authorities holding 51% interest and AMP Capital, holding the remaining 49% interest. The airport was opened in 1935. It features a 2,329m long runway and a terminal. It has 26 passenger aprons and three freight aprons. The airport connects 81 destinations worldwide, and provides 3,200 on site jobs and a further 4,600 jobs across the region. The airport’s 45m air traffic control tower, designed by Reid Architecture, was commissioned in 2007. The airport is expected to serve 10 million passengers per annum by 2016.
In 1930, British aero engineer and aircraft builder Richard Fairey paid the Vicar of Harmondsworth £15,000 for a 150-acre plot to build a private airport to assemble and test aircraft. Complete with a single grass runway and a handful of hastily erected buildings, Fairey’s Great West Aerodrome was the humble precursor to the world’s busiest international airport, Heathrow. During World War II the government requisitioned land in and around the ancient agricultural village of Heath Row, including Fairey’s Great West Aerodrome, to build RAF Heston, a base for long-range troop-carrying aircraft bound for the Far East. An RAF-type control tower was constructed and a ‘Star of David’ pattern of runways laid, the longest of which was 3,000 yards long and 100 yards wide. Work demolishing Heath Row and clearing land for the runways started in 1944. However, by the time the war had ended the RAF no longer needed another aerodrome and it was officially handed over to the Air Ministry as London’s new civil airport on 1 January 1946. The first aircraft to take off from Heathrow was a converted Lancaster bomber called Starlight that flew to Buenos Aires. The early passenger terminals were ex‑military marquees which formed a tented village along the Bath Road. The terminals were primitive but comfortable, equipped with floral-patterned armchairs, settees and small tables containing vases of fresh flowers. To reach aircraft parked on the apron, passengers walked over wooden duckboards to protect their footwear from the muddy airfield. There was no heating in the marquees, which meant that during winter it could be bitterly cold, but in summer when the sun shone, the marquee walls were removed to allow a cool breeze to blow through. By the close of Heathrow’s first operational year, 63,000 passengers had travelled through London’s new airport. By 1951 this had risen to 796,000 and British architect Frederick Gibberd was appointed to design permanent buildings for the airport. His plan saw the creation of a central area which was accessed via a ‘vehicular subway’ running underneath the original main runway. The focal point of Gibberd’s plan was a 122ft-high control tower. There was also a passenger terminal called the Europa Building and an office block called the Queens Building. By 1961 the old terminal on the north side had closed and airlines either operated from the Europa terminal (later renamed Terminal 2) or the Oceanic terminal (now Terminal 3). Terminal 1 opened in 1969, by which time five million passengers a year were passing through the airport as the jet age arrived with Boeing 707s, VC10s and Tridents taking travellers from Heathrow to and from all parts of the world. The 1970s marked the decade when the world became even smaller thanks to Concorde and wide-body jets such as the Boeing 747. As the decade drew to a close, 27 million passengers were using Heathrow annually. Demand for air travel also created the need for another terminal, Terminal 4, which opened for business in 1986. Today Heathrow is the world’s busiest international airport and the hub of the civil aviation world. Over 67 million passengers travel through the airport annually on services offered by 90 airlines travelling to over 180 destinations in over 90 countries. By the time Heathrow celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2006 it had handled around 1.4 billion passengers on over 14 million flights. The start of operations at Terminal 5 in March 2008 marked the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Heathrow. The brand new Terminal 2: The Queen's Terminal opened for business on 4 June 2014. The first airline to move in was United Airlines.

Gatwick Airport began life in 1930 as the Surrey Aero Club, a small flyers club, used exclusively by flying enthusiasts - however it did not stay this way for long. Four years later Gatwick was licensed as a public aerodrome, intended to provide regular air services to Paris and act as a relief aerodrome for London Croydon Airport. In this year Gatwick also gained its first scheduled flights – Hillman’s Airways to Belfast and Paris. The descendants of Hillman’s Airways still fly from Gatwick; though you might know them better as the company they later formed a part of - British Airways. Today, they have been joined by roughly 56 airlines flying to 228 destinations and carrying over 45 million passengers. We’ve come a long way since the 30s. Take a look below to see the key points in our journey from private aerodrome to RAF base to the busiest single-runway airport in the world. London Gatwick became an aerodrome back in the 1930s, but the airport we know today was officially opened on 9 June 1958 by Her Majesty The Queen. Over the last 60 years our airport has grown from just 186,000 passengers to over 46 million passengers in 2019. However, the global pandemic in 2020 saw international travel restricted and our passenger numbers fall to 10 million for the year.

When it comes to defining and developing electric aircraft, VoltAero’s expertise can be summed up in one statement: “Been there, done that!” The VoltAero team has a combined 80-plus years of expertise in electric aircraft, with the unique experience of developing and flying three e-airplanes since 2011. Its first aircraft was the Electric Cri-Cri, an ultra-lightweight airplane powered by four electric motors. With a propulsive power of 20 kilowatts, this single-seat aircraft provided highly valuable knowledge in areas of battery charging and electric system integration. The next step was E-FAN, which made history in 2015 by becoming the first all-electric commercial aircraft to cross the English Channel. E-FAN increased the propulsive power to 60 kilowatts, and broadened the team’s know-how in power management and battery operation. This led to the Cassio 1 flying testbed, which is validating the powertrain for VoltAero’s production Cassio aircraft – in particular, the company’s proprietary hybrid propulsion module, which combines electric motors and a thermal engine. Cassio 1’s propulsive power of 600 kilowatts represents the rating for VoltAero’s top-of-the range, 10-seat Cassio 600 version. VoltAero CEO and Chief Technology Officer Jean Botti and Technical Director Didier Esteyne were the driving force behind these three pioneering electric aircraft. Botti led the Electric Cri-Cri and E-Fan programs in his role as Airbus’ Chief Technical Officer, while the aircraft were developed with the support of Esteyne and his team at France’s Aéro Composites Saintonge. Building on the VoltAero team’s expertise, the company is ready to usher in a new era of safe, efficient and eco-friendly electric flight. VoltAero is taking electric aircraft to an entirely new level. Benefitting from 50-plus years of combined pioneering expertise, VoltAero is developing a truly unique general aviation airplane with hybrid-electric propulsion for safe, quiet, efficient and eco-friendly flight. Safe, efficient and eco-friendly: these are the keywords for VoltAero’s hybrid-electric powertrain. Equipped with VoltAero’s proprietary propulsion module – which combines electric motors and an internal combustion engine – Cassio aircraft will have propulsive power ranging from 330 to 600 kilowatts, corresponding to the aircraft’s versions with four, six and 10-seats.

While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
Been there, done that... doing it all over again! Herby, a product of South Africa, vintage '63, Internaut since '82. Roaming the world since the age of 23 to date. Jack of all trades, master of none. Techie, pilot, nomad. Can travel~live~work, anywhere. Global village citizen, living without boundaries, my primary passions are aviation, the sea and Ubuntu Synergy. I am, because we are. Together. We create unity, foster community, motivate affiliates to generate residual revenue, and facilitate networking events. It's time to LIVE your life! My mission is to help people from all walks of life, gain financial independence, while caring for the world around us. I believe charity begins at the cash register. Just say no to donations. Learn how to earn. Make sure you have a meal, an income, clothes, a home and good health. Constantly bombing your mind with books and exercise, are two battles that win the war of longevity. I want to grow old. There is no planet B. I'm a big fan of renewable resources and ethical commerce. Gardens, farming, trees and bees, and anything that carries fleas. Helping our paw-legged friends in shelters, finding furever homes much faster. Same for birds, horses, donkeys, circus prisoners and liberating zoos. Noble causes that need proactive participants. Anyone can help: Scholars, students, employment seekers, those just over broke. Single and stay-at-home parents. Business owners, administrators and managers of any ilk. Retrenched and retired folks who still have much to give. Everyone can become successful super affiliates. Generating residual income is easy, and I will be your guide. With 40+ years in technology, aviation and extensive travel, this digital nomad has a wealth of experience to share. Helping others navigate the fear of failure and proven pathway to success.
