Both found themselves reflecting on deeper issues than the lease — and fighting back tears — as they inked a 20-year deal that renews the terms of Delta’s massive operation at the city-owned Atlanta airport.Reed, who has been close to Anderson throughout his term as mayor, recalled that when he was new to the office, “Whenever I needed to call on somebody for advice, Delta’s support or something that was important to the city of Atlanta, Richard Anderson always took my call.”

Good drones: the UAVs changing airport operations for the better

Article | February 27, 2020

Drones may be the source of groans in the aviation industry, with many causing delayed flights and safety hazards. But what about the vast potential for UAVs to provide assistance and even improve safety? Here's a look at how drones could help rather than hinder airports. The global commercial drone market is expected to grow by 26% each year from 2016 to reach a value of $10,738m by 2022. Even airports and airlines can benefit from the maturation of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology, with applications ranging from airport inspections to bird control and drone delivery.

Could Altitude Hold The Key To Reducing Aviation Emissions?

Article | February 22, 2020

According to a new study, aircraft altitude could hold the key to drastically reducing global warming. Research shows that a lower flying altitude could help the aviation industry reduce its carbon footprint. That’s despite the fuel inefficiency of low altitude flights. When it comes to the climate, the aviation industry is heavily focused on investing in new technologies to keep passengers in the air. From biofuels to new aircraft designs, the focus is on bringing a green evolution to aviation. However, what if the answer to combatting climate change already existed? It might be a case of casting aside the rulebook and looking at aviation’s carbon footprint from a different angle.

Why Did Airbus Build The A330?

Article | April 6, 2020

The idea of building the Airbus A330 dates back to the mid-1970s when the European planemaker was looking to improve the A300. The concept for the A330 was to build a widebody aircraft that could compete with the Lockheed L-1011 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10.The program to build a successor to the A300 split into two branches: the A330 and the A340. By the 1980s, Airbus had developed a fly-by-wire system for the A320 family of jets that it wanted to incorporate into the larger planes. Airbus thought that, by doing this, it would give them the upper hand over Boeing when it came to cockpit commonality. By making the flight decks and characteristics the same on all Airbus aircraft, it would allow airlines to cross-train crews quicker.
