Right now, as a country, we are still struggling to get over the economic slump we have been in and the rest of the world is seeing its own share of hardships as well. As things begin to improve, however, we can start to look toward the future hopeful of the interesting things that are to come: scientifically, politically, and economically. Momentous advancements in the aviation field, for one, are of great significance.
The Federal Aviation Administration predicts that by 2030 we will have an increase of over 50,000 aircraft in the general vehicle fleet, in addition to over 52,000 more pilots. The uptick in hours flown will be approximately 15 million, with the total ending up at 38.9 million mark. With 50 million more industry jobs and $3.6 trillion of worldwide gross domestic product likely to be tied into the field, aviation will not be hurting in any department.
Both executive jet charter and commercial services will likely grow and simultaneously reap the benefits of the new technology research and development provides. Safety will be noticeably increased by better navigation systems, more sophisticated collision technology, and a higher standard for those working in the field. Newer, automatic satellite-run air traffic control systems are leaps and bounds better than land-based radar and will allow for much more fine-tuned and safer communication between pilots and air traffic controllers. They will both hold the ability to view radar-like visuals with streaming and highly accurate satellite communicated data. Pilots will be more effectively alerted to other nearby aircraft and which in turn will consequently buy them more time to maneuver using this technology, referred to as ADS-B (Automatic Departure Surveillance Broadcast).
Noise and air pollution will be lessened, with manufacturers inventing noise reducing technology and Pratt and Whitney constructing an engine with 20% less fuel inefficiency. Engines will soon be cleaner on the whole due to the implementation of various green technologies.
Whether you plan to travel commercially or prefer to charter a jet, aviation is growing by massive amounts, and the future of air transportation is appearing brighter every day. Aviation is a necessary factor in today’s economy, for the transportation of items and for many other features of business. By committing more to the future of air travel, we are simultaneously securing the robustness of our own development in numerous ways. We all count on aviation to some degree, and improvements in the industry will likewise improve our lives.
