Over a century has passed since humans took to commercial flying. Traditional safety practices have worked well but the last decade has seen the need for an updated understanding of ATM safety. The modern safety views are complementary to the traditional ones but are also a new way of understanding and enabling safety practices. This master...

Growth in air traffic demand and increasing attention for environmental impact of the air travel industry and airports has spurred the innovation of the Electric Taxi System (ETS). The ETS incorporates an electric motor in the main or nose landing gear of an aircraft, powered by the auxiliary power unit (APU) of the aircraft. The system allows...

This research aims to improve the inventory planning for a logistical provider who offers aircraft component maintenance and availability to its customer. To this purpose, a classification model is introduced which makes use of two existing classification methods i.e. Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Cost Criterion in order to produce a...

A model has been developed to demonstrate the value of a decentralized approach to formation flight routing. In the considered scenario, formation flight is an in-flight option. While centralized approaches are well covered in the literature, anticipating the use of formation flight before take-off, decentralized approaches have received less...

Over the last decades, air traffic facilitates the movement of people and goods all over the world, enabling economic growth and development. Despite the impact air traffic has on industries and systems all over the world, the aviation industry is influenced by the same factors as well. Energy prices, the economic situation, population growth...

A first outline for the concept of formation flying is investigated. The objective is to create a sustainable air transportation system for the next generation of aircraft from a formation flying perspective. When flying in formation over long distances the trailing aircraft can benefit from the wake vortices created by the preceding aircraft....
