Pilot assistance system LNAS reduces noise in the approach path
Pilot assistance system LNAS reduces noise in the approach path
During more than 90 approaches to Zurich Airport conducted under the leadership of the Swiss SkyLab Foundation, researchers from Empa and the German Aerospace Center (DLR) tested an assistance system that supports pilots via a display during quiet and, at the same time, fuel-efficient approaches. The results show a measurable reduction in noise emissions and fuel consumption.

Climate explained: why don't we have electric aircraft?
Climate explained: why don’t we have electric aircraft?
Electric cars, trains, trams and boats already exist. That logically leads to the question: why are we not seeing large electric aircraft? And will we see them any time soon? Aeronautical engineering academic, Dr Dries Verstraete explains. Why do we have electric cars and trains, but few electric planes? The main reason is that it's much simpler to radically modify a car or train, even if they look very similar to traditional fossil-fuel vehicles on the outside.
