    Creating a Resilient Sustainability Strategy: The Pratt & Whitney Story
    Lunch and Learn

    May 11, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    A CASI Zoom Event


    Avrum Goldman, B. Eng, M. Eng
    Pratt & Whitney Canada

    Jeff Bird, CASI Ottawa

    We have always addressed environmental issues in Aerospace, but the challenges facing us today demand a comprehensive “Sustainability Strategy”. Resource depletion, use of water and energy, creation of greenhouse gases, and our social license all threaten the aerospace industry’s ability to stay in business. The good news is that this challenge, like those faced in the past, can spur innovation and creative solutions that ensure we not only survive, but thrive!

    Join us to hear the Pratt & Whitney journey, and how we developed our goal to become “The best Aerospace company FOR the world”.

    A special section will be addressed to students and technical people starting on their careers, with ideas on how to make Sustainability part of your thinking and your career path.

    Speaker: Avrum Goldman, B. Eng, M. Eng

    Avrum’s career at Pratt & Whitney spans 36 years in the fields of engineering, airworthiness, quality and sustainability. He has worked on nearly all of the 14 product families designed and manufactured by P&W’s Canadian division, from design, development and certification through production, service and overhaul. He has also worked on cost engineering, process certification and technology development.

    Avrum Goldman has both bachelor and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering from McGill University in Montreal, with certificates for Six Sigma Green Belt, Certified Quality Engineer and Sustainable Development.

    Avrum is passionate about mentoring and sharing knowledge, delivering over 30 hours of seminars to employees and students every year. As both of his parents were teachers, the passion for learning and sharing comes naturally.

    Special Note

    The Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute has for many years enjoyed the support of a Royal Patron – Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. With his passing and recognizing his devotion and initiatives in sustainability, the Ottawa Branch with the support of the CASI Council will present annually an event to advance sustainability for Canada.

    Insights into Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) Aircraft Design


    Dr. Rafi Yoeli

    May 20, 2021 | 12:00 - 13:00

    A CASI Zoom Event in association with

    Royal Aeronautical Society, Montréal Branch

    Are you interested in the emergence of Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) technology in the aerospace and aviation industry?

    The Royal Aeronautical Society’s Montreal Branch, in conjunction with the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI), will be holding a one-hour free online lecture on the Insights into VTOL Aircraft Design in May, hosted by Dr. Rafi Yoeli.

    With more than 20 years of experience devoted to the VTOL aerodynamics and configuration design, Dr. Yoeli has been deeply involved in the emerging Urban Air Mobility market. One of his designs is the passenger carrying CityHawk, with the aim of creating a 100% sustainable VTOL aircraft with true “fly anywhere, land anywhere” capability.

    In this lecture, which is the first of a series of planned lectures on VTOL aircraft design, Dr. Yoeli will present his own perspective on the theoretical foundations of VTOL flight, design options for sustainable power in future VTOL aircraft and an overview of the unique aerodynamics of VTOL flight. The lecture will also include references to safety and certification standards.
