Workplan implementation completed

REACT4C has successfully completed its implementation in April 2014. Final project meeting took place in 11-12 November 2013. A stakeholder seminar was organised on 20 November 2013 in Berlin, presenting achievements and discussing on implementation of results. A series of publications on scientific results is available.

Successful Kick-Off Meeting in Munich

On 3-4 Feb 2010 the successful Kick-Off Meeting took place in Erding, near Munich. Main objective of REACT4C is to (1) explore feasibility of adopting flight altitudes and flight routes that lead to reduced fuel consumption and emissions, and lessen the environmental impact; and (2) to estimate the overall global effect of such ATM measures in terms of climate change. All project partners participated in the event and provided condensed overview on planned work. Particular focus was given on interfaces between atmospheric scientists, air traffic management experts and flight controllers. At the end of the meeting it was decided to host the Green Aircraft workshop in Spring 2010 in Toulouse, in order to discuss current knowledge on environmental flight planning.

REACT4C presented during IP QUANTIFY final Meeting

On 27 January 2010 an overview presentation on REACT4C was given by Sigrun Matthes (DLR) during the final meeting of IP QUANTIFY. The talk was well received by an interested international audience. Particular interest laid on current state-of-the art on environmental flight planning and early sensitivity studies performed. The optimisation approach was emphasized as underlying principle in the presentation. Whole presentation was made availabe under the project web site of QUANTIFY (and in the download section of this web site).
