The FlyATM4E project, “a SESAR success story”

One of the SESAR Exploratory Research projects in which the Aircraft Operations Lab has participated to address the climate impact of aviation is FlyATM4E. The project studied flight data during different weather scenarios, as well as vertical and horizontal flight paths, to identify climate-optimised aircraft trajectories. The optimisation process showed a potential reduction of non-CO2Continue reading “The FlyATM4E project, “a SESAR success story””

URJC seminar: Towards a more sustainable future aviation

One of the main challenges for the aerospace sector is to achieve a sustainable future for global air traffic. This is stated in the 2030 Agenda, whose Sustainable Development Goal 13 seeks to take urgent action to combat climate change and its effects. Key to achieving this is mitigating the climate change impacts of theContinue reading “URJC seminar: Towards a more sustainable future aviation”

How can we ensure global air mobility that minimizes resource use and climate effects?

Sigrun Matthes is a scientist researching at DLR and also the coordinator of the FlyATM4E project. In the following video she answers the above question also addresses the following points:
