Concept studies on the mitigation potential by climate-optimized flights by DLR

The 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 reducing its CO2 emissions and also its non-CO2 effects. One way to implement such mitigation … More Concept studies on the mitigation potential by climate-optimized flights by DLR

Women in aviation

“Increasing female leadership in projects is not an easy task. I feel such activities need to start from the participating organisations. Additionally, visibility to women in science should be fostered and supported, for example in conference committees, evaluation boards, advisory boards and scientific panels.” Sigrun Matthes, Project Coordinator of FlyATM4E This reference is taken from … More Women in aviation

Climate Impact Mitigation Potential of European Air Traffic in a Weather Situation with Strong Contrail Formation

Various team members just published the article Climate Impact Mitigation Potential of European Air Traffic in a Weather Situation with Strong Contrail Formation in the open-access journal Aerospace. It gathers the results from the ATM4E project, a former project in which our members DLR, TUDelft, and TUHH were involved. This project is very linked to … More Climate Impact Mitigation Potential of European Air Traffic in a Weather Situation with Strong Contrail Formation
