Ever since the invention of powered human flight, there has been a need to provide places for these flying machines to take off and land. As technology advanced, the need for an aircraft to land in less than optimal daylight conditions led to the integration of lighting on the airfield. This, now, required the ability to turn these lights on when needed and off when not, leading to the creation of the Airfield Lighting Control System.Continue reading

Although remote towers bring many benefits and more are being deployed, the possibilities of further digital transformation of the tower go much further, believes Conor Mullan of Think Research. Mullan challenged the audience at the ADB SAFEGATE Aviation Summit in the UK in May 2018 to think differently. Continue reading
A-CDM. According to some reports, the amount of data collected by operators is increasing like a supernova; up to 90% of data ever created has been collected and stored in just the last two years. But are airports making the most of this valuable asset? Continue reading
Air travel has transformed the way the world sees distance. Moving halfway round the globe often takes only a day. But airport congestion still brings more inconvenience than it should. Most aircraft journeys are smooth and seamless affairs. But transfer stops are still the bane of all long distance journeys. At best, the long distance passenger will wait an hour or so at a key hub airport. But if there are any delays at all on the schedule, the trip can become a nightmare. And probably the main culprit for delays is airport congestion.
SUSTAINABILITY. The Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) aims to contribute to the industry’s commitment to carbon neutral growth from 2020 (“CNG2020”). With commitment from several major players in the industry, a framework of impact mitigation for aviation-sourced greenhouse gas emission levels is taking shape. Slowly. Continue reading
