FAA Contracts Accelerate Environmentally Friendly Technology

The Federal Aviation Administration has announced $125 million dollars in contracts to develop and demonstrate technologies that will reduce commercial jet fuel consumption, emissions and noise. The contracts are part of the FAA's Continuous Lower Energy, Emissions and Noise - or CLEEN - program - to speed up the introduction of "green" technology into aviation.

The FAA is contracting with five companies including Boeing, General Electric, and Rolls-Royce to research and demonstrate a variety of technologies, including sustainable alternative aviation fuels; and lighter and more efficient gas turbine engine components.

Among the goals are a reduction in fuel burn by 33 percent; a 60-percent reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions; and a 32-decibel reduction in cumulative aircraft noise levels.

Digital Notices to Airmen

The Atlantic City International Airport, located at the Federal Aviation Adminstration's Technical Center, has become the first in the national airspace system to deliver "digital notices to airmen," or NOTAM's. NOTAMs provide computer-generated safety information to pilots and air traffic controllers about conditions at an airport like construction and hazards. FAA Administrator Randy Babbit calls digital information management "key to meeting the air traffic system's safety and efficiency goals," as well as modernizing the national airspace system. Digital NOTAMs have safety and efficiency benefits over traditional NOTAMs, including transmitting to all air traffic management systems simultaneously. And, airspace users get easier to read information. Other airports that will follow the lead of Atlantic City International include: Washington Dulles, Reagan National, B-W-I, Richmond, and Norfolk.
