The main objective of the FlyATM4E project is to expand approved climate-assessment methods and optimization of aircraft trajectories in order to identify promising mitigation options suitable to solve the task of reducing overall climate impact of aircraft operations. FlyATM4E will develop a concept to identify climate-optimised aircraft trajectories which enable a robust and eco-efficient reduction in aviation’s climate impact. FlyATM4E will identify those weather situations and aircraft trajectories, which lead to a robust climate impact reduction despite uncertainties in atmospheric science that can be characterised by ensemble probabilistic forecasts.
- FlyATM4E at CleanSky2 & InterFABIn the upcomming weeks, our project coordinator, Sigrun Matthes will participate in a few events, highlighting the congribution of FlyATM4E to a more sustainable aviation. On 29th april, she and Volker Grewe will held the keynote at the 2nd edition … More FlyATM4E at CleanSky2 & InterFAB
- FlyATM4E Steering Committee on International Mother Earth DayFlyATM4E was having its Steering Committee Meeting today. The status of the different work packages were presented and the next steps of FlyATM4E Project were discussed. This meeting coincided with the International Mother Earth Day. Mother Earth is clearly urging … More FlyATM4E Steering Committee on International Mother Earth Day
- Concept studies on the mitigation potential by climate-optimized flights by DLRThe climate impact of aviation is caused by both CO2 emissions and non-CO2 effects, which include, for example, contrails, and contrail-cirrus, formation of ozone (O3) or methane (CH4) depletion by nitrogen oxide emissions. Aviation can reduce its climate impact by … More Concept studies on the mitigation potential by climate-optimized flights by DLR
