The Institute of Aerospace Technologies (IAT) at the University of Malta organised a half-day event within the Faculty of ICT in order to disseminate the results of research conducted within the Touch-Flight project.

Touch-Flight is a national R&I project funded by MCST and is a collaboration between the University of Malta and QuAero Ltd, a Maltese aviation consultancy company. The project is developing new methods to control aircraft using touch technologies.

The event started with a welcome address by the IAT Chairman Professor Ernest Cachia and the IAT Director Professor Ing. David Zammit Mangion, followed by addresses from the MCST Chairman Dr Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando and the Parliamentary Secretary for Research, Innovation, Youth and Sport Hon. Chris Agius. Speakers then proceeded to explain the research carried out in the project, with presentations by Captain Alan Muscat from QuAero Ltd, and Ms Nathalie Cauchi, Mr Kevin Theuma and Dr Jason Gauci from the IAT. 

The event was well attended by representatives from various sectors of the aviation industry in Malta, MCST, students and the press.
