  1. 1. Climate Policy for Aviation - Analyses of measures at multiple levels

    Author : Anna Katarina Elofsson; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; local governance; biofuels; climate policy instruments; aviation;

    Abstract : The aviation sector is affected by local, national, multinational (EU) and/or global climate policies targeting domestic, intra-European and intercontinental flights in different and partly overlapping ways. The aim of this thesis is to strengthen further knowledge on climate policy for aviation at multiple governance levels and by doing so contribute to a more informed policy process. READ MORE

    Abstract : The average yearly increase in passenger kilometres travelled by air has been 5.8 % over the last 40 years. Fortunately the fuel consumption has not increased at the same rate. Over the same time period the average increase in fuel sold has been 2. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mental workload in basic civil aviation training

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Nicklas Dahlström; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aviation training; mental workload; glass cockpit; heart rate;

    Abstract : Although the aviation industry has gone through great technological and commercial change in the last decades, basic civil aviation training has not changed accordingly. The consequences of the changes in civil aviation have rarely resulted in research programs in the field of basic civil aviation training and this phase, where future pilots gain their first sets of skills and knowledge, has long received only minimal attention from the aviation industry.
