The major changes taking place in technology have some of the
greatest effect in the world of aviation. Yet, in an industry which
started with the concept of 'open skies', each sector has
traditionally developed on its own and adjusted to developments in
other areas as and when required. The need for integration is
particularly important as the skies become increasingly crowded.
More intense commercialization dramatically increases the
interlocking between technological developments and the size of the
financial investments required. For maximum efficiency the aviation
system thus has to develop as an integrated whole with a greater
awareness of events in other sectors. This book is intended to meet
this requirement by addressing the breadth and depth of the
aviation system and looking at some areas where significant
advances are happening. While following the processes of
development, the reader will see where the results might lead in
the new century. Its three parts concentrate on areas of great
significance - in integration as well as in technological progress
- especially for their impact on human and social aspects. The
editor and the invited contributors are amongst the foremost
experts, researchers and industry leaders in their fields in the
global aviation community, many with hands-on experience of massive
change. The intended readership includes those who are moving into
management functions in air traffic management, airplane
manufacturing and airline operations; in training centres, colleges
