Magdy Kandil is a retired Technical Fellow from UTC Aerospace systems with 34 years of experience in the design, research, development, qualification and airworthiness certification of mechanical, hydraulic, electrical power generation, and emergency power for aerospace commercial and military systems. He is currently an Engineering Consultant with Ingenium Technologies and formerly a Consultant DER, UTC company DER and a Boeing Supplier AR with FAA delegations to cover order 8110.37 EChart C1, Chart C2, Chart E, Chart B for CFR14, Part 25, Part 21, Part 33 including Flight Controls, PMA identicality and Major repairs with Proven experience in developing qualification and certification plans, FAA conformity and test witnessing. He pioneered the development of high power density hydraulics for electrical power and actuation systems, 8000 psi servo controlled variable displacement hydraulic motors and starter drive generator for UTAS/ Hamilton Sundstrand 737 AEWC IDG, A380 and F-22 programs. Mr. Kandil is recognized by his peers as an expert and mentor in Hydraulics, Sealing Technology, Mechanical Design, and Airworthiness Certification with specialty in high pressure axial piston pumps/motors, control valves, static and dynamic seals with solid experience in failure analysis and C/A, evaluating supplier capabilities, technical adequacy assessment and controlled builds for supplier engineered components. He was the vice chair of SAE A6C-2 Seals committee and contributed to the creation of new industry standards, update and revision of numerous SAE publications including SAE AIR744C, development of AS6235, and co-authored SAE technical paper 901794 on the “Design, Development and Demonstration of High Pressure, Over- Center Variable Displacement Hydraulic Motor”. He was voted as best presenter by SAE A-6 for his tech presentation “Types of Wear & Galling Process in Hydraulic Pumps”. Mr. Kandil is a 1975 graduate of the University of Alexandria, Egypt with a BS in mechanical engineering. He holds six US patents, two pending patents and numerous patent disclosures under review.
