The Age of Aerospace explores the last 100 years of aviation history in unprecedented detail. From the Wright brothers first flight to the Apollo moon landings and beyond, the series highlights milestones in an industry defined by innovation. Woven into this history is the story of The Boeing Company. Today it stands as the largest aerospace company in the world, but over much of the last century it navigated an uncertain future through war and peace, booms and busts. The Age of Aerospace recounts the fate of a company, a country, and its people, and the countless contributions to technology, culture, and history they have made.

Buzzwords

Aerospace – Aircraft – Aviation – Crosscheck – Jet Age – Jet Set – Lay Over – Mercury – NASA – Rocket – Runway – Runway Excursion – Spacecraft – Ticket – Ticketing

Runway excursion is an incident involving only a single aircraft, where it makes an inappropriate exit from the runway. This can happen because of pilot error, poor weather, or a fault with the aircraft. “Overrun” is a type of excursion where the aircraft is unable to stop before the end of the runway.

Quotes
Just take a seat. You’re not buying real estate.

– Flight attendant on Southwest

Airports are un-places; a place you only visit to leave it again.

– Marcus Bauer, flughafen-leer-steril

‘Reduce the number of flights you take to as small an amount as possible, and if you do ever fly, stay somewhere where your visit will be contributing positively to the wellbeing of local people and their environment’. I’m just struggling to fit it on a banner.

Carbon offsetting organisations
atmosfairfacebooktwitter

Atmosfair is a German carbon offsetting company. It produces the Airline Index – Whereas car drivers can since long inform themselves thoroughly about the CO2 emissions of a car before purchase, air passengers are left in the dark when it comes to choosing an airline for a flight. The airline index sheds light upon this lack of information. In the index, every airline receives in between 0 and 100 efficiency points, differentiated between short-, medium and long haul flights. This enables passengers to compare airlines offering a flight to the desired destination and to choose the airline which produces the least CO2 emissions.

Industry Who’s Who
IATA is an international trade body, created some 60 years ago by a group of airlines. Today, IATA represents some 230 airlines comprising 93% of scheduled international air traffic.

Setback screens

However, seatback screens are falling out of favour as more and more passengers turn to their own devices for entertainment. Airlines are instead opting to provide streaming services that allow passengers to watch the inflight entertainment on their smartphone or tablet. Qantas and Virgin Australia are already doing this on some planes, while several US airlines are now phasing out seatback screens on short-haul flights.
