The E-CONTRAIL project kicks off

The E-CONTRAIL project, an exploratory research funded by the SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking, was launched on 13 June. Coordinated by Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) and in partnership with the Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH), the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA), and the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMI), the project aims toContinue reading “The E-CONTRAIL project kicks off”

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””
