License to fly drones, event at night and beyond line of sight

When it comes to commercial drone flights, three big names – UPS, Fedex and Amazon – are already off the starting blocks. The critical US aviation authority FAA has given its blessing for deliveries to be made from the air. UPS has even been granted permitted to fly at night and beyond the pilot’s line of sight.

Boeing takes Porsche into the Air

Porsche is taking off. With the help of Boeing, the sports car manufacturer is now exploring the market for electric air taxis. A first prototype could be launched as early as 2020. A later series model will also be able to fly autonomously.

Flying through the Air in a big “V”

Large, modern commercial aircraft always have a similar design: a round fuselage, central wings with engines attached, and a tailplane at the rear. But a new concept from the Delft University of Technology is breaking with all the conventions. The shape of a new innovative, aerodynamic aircraft is reminiscent of a horizontal letter “V”.

Internet From Space

Thousands of new Internet satellites are set to be launched into space in the coming years, promising connectivity for everyone, everywhere around the globe. However, the increasing activity in space also poses risks.

The End of the Watch Shop

Decades after its maiden flight, the Airbus A300 is still one of the indispensable workhorses in the air freight industry. Logistics service provider UPS is now preparing the cargo version of the aircraft for the future, with a new digital cockpit.

“Space at the top”: New Software Saves Time and Fuel

Traffic Aware Strategic Aircrew Request, or TASAR for short, is the joint research project run by the US space and aeronautics administration NASA and Alaska Airlines. Route and altitude optimization based on various real-time flight and weather data will help pilots save time and fuel.

Salty Plants for Clean Skies

The airline Etihad Airways is using the power of plants for fuel technology. With Salicornia, aircraft should fly more sustainably in the future, helping to reduce CO2 emissions.

Less turbolence on the runway

Less turbolence on the runway

Within the framework of a research project, it has been possible for the first time to significantly reduce the dangerous wake vortices behind starting jets. This not only increases safety, but also allows a higher cycle sequence over the pistes.

Reducing costs–raising performance
