In a world where the next big solution is constantly being sought and only the most innovative projects get celebrated, there is ongoing methodological work to make an impact on one of the greatest challenges we all face – climate change.
For many years air traffic controllers, airspace designers, engineers and scientists at NATS have been working on a project that is literally invisible – to reduce air traffic management (ATM) related CO2 emissions, by making UK airspace more efficient.
It takes considerable effort, collaboration and sustained activity over time.
Nevertheless, the outcome could not be more important.
NATS would like to share its airspace efficiency group story on how it is improving the skies above Britain.
