Hydrogen Powered Aircraft – A saviour or a step too far?

Hydrogen Powered Aircraft – A saviour or a step too far?

Our previous blogs have covered aviation emissions in the past and future years.  We now turn towards one of the high-profile candidates for minimising aviation’s impact on climate – Hydrogen Powered Aircraft, where hydrogen is used as a fuel instead of kerosene.  We...
Aviation emissions, the path to 2050 and a hint of optimism

Aviation emissions, the path to 2050 and a hint of optimism

I’ve expended quite a few words recently on our need as an industry to honestly own our emissions problem and to take the COVID pause as an opportunity to rethink our ambitions of unfettered growth. (TL;DR: We need something approaching real-zero, not CORSIA...
FUTURE PBN TMAS WILL NEED ADVANCED FLOW MANAGEMENT

FUTURE PBN TMAS WILL NEED ADVANCED FLOW MANAGEMENT

In my previous blog article, I presented a new focus for advanced approach concepts – harnessing their environmental benefits in a future very high density PBN approach airspace.  In this blog, I continue with the next step in this idea – the means of...

MODE SWITCHING IN DIGITAL TOWER TRANSITION

When the market talks Digital Towers, it usually focuses on operational benefits or technological advancements, and not so much on the human performance and human factors. Yet we at Think have long acknowledged that this is a significant aspect of the concept,...
COVID protocols -still necessary, still possible

COVID protocols -still necessary, still possible

Back in May we did some analysis on the COVID-related measures likely to be put in place during air travel.  We modelled some recovery scenarios across the terminal and the gate as traffic started to pick up following “lockdown” across Europe.  Now that 6 months have passed and we have a clearer picture of what form the recovery is taking, we’ve taken a look back at our modelling to see if the analysis still holds. 

Challenging The 80/20 Fallacy of ATCO Workload

Challenging The 80/20 Fallacy of ATCO Workload

As Human Factors has grown as a discipline within the ATM industry, controller workload has slowly gained appreciation by decision makers as a key performance indicator (KPIs) and is now a standard marker of operational feasibility across development projects – and...
