Fuel consumption of aircraft needs to be reduced to obtain greener flights. The aeronautical industry has set the goal of reducing their CO2 emissions to 50% of the level recorded in 2005 by the year 2050. Another important emission to be considered is NOx which, when at high altitudes, is depleting the ozone layer. These environmental justifications for designing aircraft and systems that reduce fuel burn are compounded by the high costs of fuel. Researchers from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) have developed a methodology to evaluate the amount of fuel burnt for different flight trajectories.
