    We support a global approach to addressing greenhouse gas emissions. Together with other airlines, engine and airframe manufacturers, fuel suppliers, airports and governments, we’re working towards a collective industry goal of percent average annual fuel efficiency improvement through , with carbon neutral growth beginning in   In today’s economy, monitoring fuel consumption and efficiency is high on the list of aircraft carriers around the world. This is where Lynnwood-based Crane Aerospace & Electronics is meeting the demand by expanding their capabilities with a larger testing and production facility for their unique fuel flow meters and new devices to transmit.

Schedules would be reduced, loads increased, and the use of fuel for aviation cut by 15 percent. Then, as now, we faced a crisis over energy. Nixon’s speech followed the OPEC oil shock, but. WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- Aerodynamics testing on the KC Stratotanker confirmed vertically mounted wiper blades reduce aircraft drag by approximately 1% during cruise conditions, potentially saving the Air Force $7 million annually in associated fuel costs.

Across the KC fleet, blades are positioned horizontally on the windshield as part of the aircraft’s original s design. "(Aviation fuel efficiency) is not a new AMC initiative, but through the use of new technology, the introduction of improved software and changes in procedures we're able to continually refine the processes that support the flying mission," said Royal Air Force Wing Commander Martin Walsh, deputy chief of the AMC Standardization and Evaluation.

Fuel costs comprise a major portion of air transport operating costs. Thus, energy efficiency is an essential design goal for future transport aircraft.

The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.

The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy. Aircraft Airframe Fuel Systems Market by Aircraft Type (Commercial Aircraft, Military Aircraft, and UAV), by Engine Type (Jet Engine, Turboprop Engine, Helicopter Engine, and UAV Engine), by Component Type (Piping, Inerting Systems, Fuel Pumps, Fuel Valves, Fuel Gauging and Management System, Fuel Tanks, and Others), by Technology Type (Fuel Injection, Pump Feed Technology, and /5(12).

Pratt & Whitney says its new engines—which use an internal gearbox to slow down the speed of the fan—could save 20 percent on fuel consumption compared to. Tow-steered composites can reduce the structural weight of an aircraft by 10 percent while reducing fuel burn by percent.

This acceptance of a standard gives magneto-replacement manufacturers a standard to test against and is an important cornerstone for alternative ignition system development. This report updates a study that analyzed the sales- and activity-weighted fuel efficiency improvement of commercial jet aircraft from to It improves on that work in several significant ways, updating with new aircraft types and data for to deliveries and using refined metrics for measurement, including the efficiency metric value that the.

Martins also published a chapter in the Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering on "Fuel Burn Reduction through Wing Morphing" describing potential designs ideas and optimization methods in this area.

"Research on new materials and morphing mechanisms will make morphing systems lighter, more energy efficient, and more economical," he wrote.

Past studies on fuel conservation measures in the Air Force and at DOD include Defense Science Board (DSB),More Capable Warfighting Through Reduced Fuel Burden; Air Force Scientific Advisory Board,Technology Options for Improved Air Vehicle Fuel Efficiency; and NRC, Improvements in aircraft fuel efficiency have been similar to fuel-efficiency advances demonstrated by the automobile: inthe average new car used 41 percent less fuel per mile than the average new car in ; fuel efficiency of new aircraft (per passenger-seat-kilometer) improved about 34 percent over the same time period.

The definitive professional's reference to jet transport safety, efficiency, and profitability Modeled on airline training courses, this groundbreaking book thoroughly explores the driving maxim of jet transport design and engineering--carry as much weight as possible as far as possible as fast as possible at the greatest profit possible/5(8).

Robert W. Leonard has written: 'Fuel efficiency through new airframe technology' -- subject(s): Energy conservation, Aerodynamics Asked in Mechanical Engineering, Electronics.Modern trends applied in the fuel system technologies have been useful in increasing fuel efficiency as well as the effectiveness of aircraft maintenance.

A new technology or innovation can be embraced in fuel control units, fuel tank, gauges, or fuel lines. For instance, in Boeingnew electrical systems are used to reduce fuel consumption.

New plane designs, alternative fuels, flight patterns, and even airport architecture promise to shrink aviation's carbon footprint.
