Brexit: How Will it Affect Aviation?

Brexit is the most famous word used since the referendum in June 2016 when the United Kingdom decided to leave the European Union -a decision which few people on either side of public opinion would deny has created widespread uncertainty across all business sectors, aviation included. There has been a lot of alarmism, many proposals have been made, the white paper published but nothing approved and agreed from all sides. Nowadays there is a no-deal scenario for the 29th March 2019, the date when the agreement or no agreement will become a reality. In the aviation industry, the most significant impact of Brexit will be felt by all the European citizens and the British entities that work and f

The group of volunteers were officially members of the Chinese Air Force, motivated by the belief in the cause they were fighting for and salaries around three times what they had been making in the U.S. forces.

Mitigating the Carbon Footprint

A report by National Geographic suggests that if aviation were a country, it would be the world’s seventh largest carbon emitter. Today the industry contributes 12% of the total CO2 emissions created by transport (road vehicles by comparison contribute 74%). Despite this, its impact is not as critical as other industries as the all the supply chain is committed to the reduction its carbon footprint. In this way, aviation produces 2% of all human-induced carbon dioxide.
