When will the green transformation include avionics? When will hydrogen-oxygen-fueled aircraft be developed? When will emission-free aviation based on hydrogen-oxygen jet technology be developed? When will passenger and cargo planes powered by hydrogen-oxygen jet engines be built?
Since space shuttles, which were already built several decades ago, flew to the planet's orbit and were powered by hydrogen-oxygen fuel, it should be technically possible to build passenger and cargo planes powered by hydrogen-oxygen jet engines.
With the urgent transition to a zero-carbon economy, there is growing pressure to extend the green transition to avionics as well, i.e. to build zero-emission, zero-greenhouse-gas-emitting aircraft, and hydrogen-oxygen jet engines are such a solution. In the future, as part of the zero-carbon economy, such technological solutions should become widespread, and thus the green transformation should also include the aviation sector. The question then arises, when will this happen? When will avionics also be pro-environmentally transformed as part of the pro-environmental transformation of the economy and reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere?
Is it possible to build passenger and cargo aircraft powered by hydrogen-oxygen jet engines?
Is it possible to build transcontinental space passenger aircraft powered by hydrogen-oxygen jet engines?
Is it possible to also build small jet passenger and cargo aircraft powered by hydrogen-oxygen engines?
Will avionics also be pro-environmentally transformed as part of a pro-environmental transformation of the economy and reduction of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere?
When will the green transformation also include avionics?
When will emission-free aviation be established?

I invite everyone to join the discussion,
Thank you very much,
I want to check the relationship between technological innovation, FDI, air transport freight, and economic growth. Economic growth is the dependent variable of my study. I am following the exogenous growth theory for this study.
Please suggest any other theory supporting the relationship between technological innovation, FDI, air transport freight, and economic growth?
Your response will be highly appreciated.
The purpose is to eleborate a masters dissertation in Air Transport Mangement, being one of the study areas sources of aviation law.
According to estimates, the air transport sector lost revenues of 273 billion dollars in 2020, and it seems that the recovery period for the air transport sector will be long in light of the expected reluctance to travel, and the expected rise in the cost of flying, which requires the need to restructure the air transport market in the world.
What are the impacts of the Corona virus Covid-19 crisis on the Air Transport sector in World, and what are the possible recovery policies?
Dear All, within our new European project SYN+AIR related with the air transport we are executing an online survey which aims at identifing the mobility choices related to and from the airport. We are glad to invite you fill in the survey https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/SYN_AIR_Traveller_Survey_2021 The questionnaire is available in 5 languages (English, Greek, Spanish, Italian, Serbian) and lasts approximately 10 minutes. All adults that travel or used to travel by plane (before the Covid-19 pandemics) can answer this survey. You may find information related to the project at http://syn-air.eu/
Please, feel free to share/disseminate this request. Thanks a lot for your attention and contribution. #SESAR #H2020 #SYN+AIR
Is there a group of crucial and important UAV's parameters/features regardless of kind of mission (search missing people, disaster, evacuation, emergency deliveries, monitoring, fight a fire, training, saving trapped people, contamination, flying rescue cushion)? Or maybe every kind of mission has their own crucial parameters/features?
I'm doing bibliographic research about chemical aplications and solutions for sustainable air transport. Following aspects are of interest:
- jet fuels: synthetic, biofuels, fuel cell, etc.
- airplane construction materials to reduce its weight
I start working on research about international air transportation and the spread of COVID-19, and I need urgently the network of global Airlines.
According to this article, they compared COVID-9 with 9/11 of USA and says, after the attacks, air travel was severely disrupted. The International Air Transport Association estimated air travel demand was down by over 31% in the five months following the attacks. Much of the money people would have spent on air travel and other vacation expenses was spent on consumer goods. So thereby there will not be much effect on the semiconductor industry. Is it suitable to compare COVID-19 with 9/11? What do you think about this?
I need research material on above topic if anyone can help

I am conducting research on carbon footprinting for transporting produce during air transportation.
Does anybody have any resource related to Carbon footprinting?
Thank you in advance.
Is it correct to use a term "drone/UAV special for fire service/fire brigades"? Or are there only a adaptations/modifications of available models (like adaptations of Matrice - see https://www.dslrpros.com/inspire-1-first-responder-thermal-kit.html https://www.rmus.com/collections/police-fire-search-and-rescue-drones)?
Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) is a key avionics technology used for aviation cooperative surveillance (i.e., aircraft separation assurance and collision avoidance). However, the absence of adequate security features makes this system vulnerable to a number of cyber-physical threats (jamming, spoofing, meaconing, etc.). What technological solutions can be introduced to address this challenge?
It is significant focus on the electrification of transport. Car-makers roll out a number of new models with battery range similar to Tesla.
Even planes are assumed be electric in few years on shorter routes.
On the other hand hydrogen is again focused as a storage medium for excess renewable energy production and possible use in transportation.
There are concerns about the environmental impact and many raise the question: "how-green-are-electric-cars?" An example is found in the link below.
What could be the development and final solution for the segments: Cars, trucks, buses, marine and air transport?
Do you foresee any breakthrough of alternatives?
Everybody talks about UAV (personal or Taxi service) being a game changer to our way of traveling and commuting.
Looking at ongoing research activities and some early flight demonstrators I notice that most of them have multiple, unducted/open, and interacting rotors. Solely from a system noise point of view I would assume that this will probably be the least successful approach.
Are there any new conceptual designs that will even stand a chance if community noise exposure and annoyance is really a topic (aside of "certification" or legislation issues)?
Recent research has delved into many aspects of aviation fuel consumption. In some ways the analogy with a personal automobile is apt: you fill up, and you drive until the tank is nearly empty, repeat. The difference for aviation is that the weight of the fuel itself significantly adds to the power needed to fly ("it takes fuel to fly fuel"). So, although the equations and ideas are well known, I would appreciate pointers to industry standard methods. Our goal is analytical shortcuts that would allow this idea to be built into a model of a major airlines network.
I am searching for relatively recent articles related to low-cost, long-haul carriers in order to complement my dissertation questionnaire. Any help/suggestions would be highly appreciated.
dear colleagues, what do you think about the transfer of energy by creating a waveguide in air(waveguide, stimulating air(laser, microwave radiation, or both) and create a plasma in the air with an empty Central part and so forth) for the flow according to the obtained waveguide current, electromagnetic radiation, laser coherent, microwave. Is it possible to pass thus high energy?? I also thought possibly it may be a jet of gas or liquid for a contact to use for the same purpose, without ionization? Thinking and the search for promising ways of energy transfer for drones, quadcopters and other small air transport
As we know, public transport is important to tourism.
It can be categorised into 3 which are land, water, and air transportation.
The transportation is consists of trains, tourist busses and car rental services.
Is there is any possibility for me to measure the efficiency of tourist bus providers?
Is there is any past research on this?
My topic : A study on low cost airlines service quality and customer satisfaction in Malaysia.
Are there empirical papers on the effect of income inequality on the demand for air travel?
Looking for papers. Suggestions welcome!!
What are the main determinants for such selection?
By combining stochastic frontier and copula function it's possible to relax two main strict conditions of standard SFA. These regard the normal distribution and the independence of inefficiency and the pure randomness component.It is possibile to prove that if these two components are dependent and follow distributions other than normal, then the estimated efficiency scores are highly biased, thereby implying that past efficiency literature might be wrong.
If you are using (or if you have used) standard frontier approach (e.g., à la Battesi and Coelli 1992 and 1995) you can provide us your dataset and write a joint paper based on the re-specification of your model.
Data may refer to any sector.
Especially the most interesting are answers on following questions:
- how do you understand terms "air transport" and "aviation" - what is part of what? What is their relations?
- what resources, mechanisms and instruments can be distinguished in the process of creating and implementing vision of the development of air transport policy?
- who are the decision-makers (politicians, others?) and stakeholders of aviation policy and innovation policy and what they are influence on aviation?
- how decision-makers (politicians) think about aviation policy, the process of its formulation? What demands report? Do they see the need to take into account the elements of innovation policy?
- what kind of barriers prevent the develppment of national strategy for aviation?
- what else is also important, but i didn't noticed, mentioned?
I will be grateful for all answers, links or proposals of literature too - it will by helpful for my PhD thesis.
I wish to propose to have a instrument which can measure intensity of heavy rainfall adjacent to visibility measuring instrument on runway considering operational studies on aviation services. Any one has used it? Is it practical?
My name is Mykolas. I live in Lithuania and currently I am studying for my pilots license and Aerospace engineering masters degree VGTU (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University).
My final paper is about an importance of English language in aviation. So I would like to ask for help:
1. Information about techniques of evaluating English knowledge (especially for evaluating professional requirements).
2. Any article about incidents because of miscommunication or recordings would help.
3. Expert opinion on the subject would really help.
4. Information on where I could find statistics about the traffic in airports would help.
5. Any ideas to make the subject more useful or interesting would also be very appreciated.
I will mention and give credit to anyone who will help me on my Master's dissertation.
Any thoughts or comments on this topic are greatly appreciated
"The most baffling thing to a layperson about the disappearance of MH370 is how it is even possible for a plane of this size to disappear so easily. In an era when people are used to being able to track a stolen smartphone, it's perplexing that switching off a couple of systems can apparently allow an airliner to vanish."?
