Conference Looks At Aviation Efficiency
Oil prices have dropped but who knows where they'll be in four months and aviation representatives will have a meeting of the minds in London in February to compare notes on squeezing the most from each drop of kerosene. The Efficiency In Aviation conference (PDF brochure) will be held Feb. 3-4 and proposes to bring together business and airline execs aimed at "developing and implementing [a] proactive cost and fuel efficient strategy."
Among the topics to be covered are cost controls, the best techniques to save fuel in the air and on the ground, the future of fuel prices, the effect of air traffic control improvements on efficiency and the pros and cons of fleet replacement. Manufacturers will also discuss the technology that's emerging to make flying more efficient.
