Forum 360: Achieving Sustainable Aviation 6 January 2020 0930 - 1130
Not that long ago, “Green Aviation” and minimizing the environmental impact of aviation was an aspirational goal, but today it is a goal for survival. The global aviation community has been proactively collaborating to set industry-wide goals and targets to reduce aircraft emissions, but will it be enough to sustain the industry as new entrants and worldwide demand drive exponential growth? Many think it is not enough and that the industry needs need to be much more aggressive. This panel will take a systems-thinking approach across the aircraft lifecycle to focus on compressing the design cycle, optimizing operations, maximizing energy savings, and accelerating the development and commercialization of new and promising technologies.
