The navigation improvements being rolled out under the FAA’s NextGen initiative won’t by themselves bring the industry in line with the ambitious carbon reduction goals for aviation laid out in a 2012 policy statement, the FAA’s Carl Burleson told an audience at AVIATION 2014 Wednesday. Burleson said improvements in engine technology and alternative fuels will also be needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 2005 levels by 2020, and “then reduce them thereafter, all while allowing the system to grow.” (Image Credit: AIAA)
