Herb Schlickenmaier President HS Advanced Concepts LLC
Mr. Herb Schlickenmaier is a 1975 graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park, with a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering. He began his career working at the Federal Aviation Administration as a research engineer providing solutions for aircraft engineering certification and operational certification challenges. The culmination of his 18-year career with the FAA was the Airborne Windshear Detection and Avoidance Program, part of a national effort that eliminated windshear as the leading cause of accident fatalities from the 1960s through the 1980s. Mr. Schlickenmaier was selected as the Program Manager for Aeronautics Controls & Guidance by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1991. He led efforts in advanced air traffic technologies, propulsion-controlled aircraft technologies, vehicle systems programs, and concluded his NASA career as SES Program Director for Aviation Safety research. In 2008, he worked for CCI, leading aerospace systems programs in alternative fuels for the FAA and advanced studies support to NASA. In 2017, Mr. Schlickenmaier created HS Advanced Concepts LLC to support aerospace-unique challenges that balance innovative research & technology with standards and certification. Currently, he is supporting the NASA Electrified Powertrain Flight Demonstrations (EPFD) Project to advance the state-of-thestandards for integrated MW-class powertrain system. He supported the successful adoption of certification practice within the NASA X-57 Distributed Electric Propulsion Flight Demonstration Project and applied the approach to the NASA SUSAN Electrofan concept.
