Paris Air Show: CTOs commit to sustainability of aviation and SAF development
The Chief Technology Officers (CTOs) of seven of the world’s leading aerospace manufacturers, released today released a joint statement during the Paris Air Show, to demonstrate how they are collaborating and sharing approaches to drive the sustainability of aviation and reach the industry-wide ATAG targets. There are three major technological elements to sustainable aviation:
1. Continuing to develop aircraft and engine design and technology in a relentless pursuit of improvements in fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions.
2. Supporting the commercialization of sustainable, alternate aviation fuels. Around 185,000 commercial flights have already proven that today’s aircraft are ready to use them.
3. Developing radically new aircraft and propulsion technology and accelerating technologies that will enable the ‘third generation’ of aviation.
