As REACT4C will provide strategic important information on efficient flying
with respect to fuel consumption, emissions and the climate impact of aviation,
stakeholders need to be involved in the project. Hence, one important
objective of REACT4C is to formulate recommendations on how to perform
environmental flight planning.
In a first phase the current knowledge based on the background experience of
the participants in REACT4C on reducing the environmental impact of aviation
by ATM will be summarized such that requirements for the pre-design of a
green aircraft can be formulated. In a later phase the knowledge obtained
within the REACT4C project will be transferred into recommendations for
future flight planning, i.e., in form of practical rules for the implementation
of environmentally friendly flight routing. Remaining research gaps will
be identified, and potential operational, economic and political obstacles
in the path to environmental friendly flight routing will be addressed.
