Contrails are those cirrus clouds generated as the engine exhausts condensate behind the aircraft.
In recent years, scientist have agreed that contrails generate more global warming than CO2 emissions.
Business jets fly a vast number of routes, higher than commercial traffic, which makes them the perfect testbed for contrail avoidance experiments.
How can RISE help?
Business aviation is a specific industry in that the flights are never the same, and timings can change until the last minute. As such, contrails cannot be managed using trends or ‘portfolios of flights’. Instead, one needs to apply a specific analysis to each new flight.
RISE is part of a consortium to pioneer contrail avoidance within business aviation. Get in touch for more information.
