New software FLIGHT could improve aeroplanes’ impact on environment

Aeroplanes could be far better for the environment, create less noise and be safer for passengers thanks to the development of new software.

The programme FLIGHT, developed by a University of Manchester academic, can apparently predict the true level of emissions released and help the industry improve its environmental reputation – one of the issues about which it’s most criticised.

Dr Antonio Filippone, from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, said: “My method can show the improved routes – and help reduce fuel consumption and dangerous emissions. The software can lead to us having better and greener aircraft.’
