“We also have to rethink our behavior”

11.2016 | Innovations in aviation primarily target the reduction of fuel consumption and emissions. But that might not be enough, says Prof. Marion A. Weissenberger-Eibl from the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI.


Between two worlds

05.2016 | Envisioning the future of air trans­port means thinking with creativity and imagi­nation while main­taining a high degree of scientific accuracy, says Bauhaus Luftfahrt executive director Mirko Hornung. In this AEROREPORT interview, the professor of air­craft design offers insights into the topics that will define the aviation industry in the coming decades.


Material development in aviation engineering

11.2015 | New materials are the key technology in developing future aircraft and engines. Yet there is still plenty of untapped potential, says Prof. Carolin Körner, Chair of Metals Science and Technology at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, in an AEROREPORT interview.


“Now we need to aim higher”

05.2015 | Solar technology and electric motors are still just a utopian dream for large passenger jets. But making sure aviation has a sustainable future calls for the courage to make big changes, says Executive Board Member Professor Rolf Henke from German Aerospace Center (DLR), in an interview with AEROREPORT.
