Aviation Club takes on Sustainable Aviation

Jill Brady, Director of HR & External Affairs at Virgin Atlantic and Chairman of Sustainable Aviation will launch its third progress report at an Aviation Club lunch on Thursday 24 March.

Sustainable Aviation is a unique UK industry coalition of engine and airframe manufacturers, airlines, airports and air traffic control.  It was set up five years ago to determine the roadmap for growth of aviation. 

The Government goes to consultation in March on a scoping document for a new aviation policy framework.  It is expected to cover noise, air quality, CO2 and other emissions, biofuels and technology.  There is a renewed environmental emphasis on all sides – and continued pressure from groups concerned about both the global and local impacts of our industry. 

Jill will make the point that it has never been more important for aviation to demonstrate it is serious – and united – in addressing the environmental impact.  Equally it must not allow policy makers to lose sight of the importance of air travel as a key driver of economic growth.  Aviation is central to the global economy in a globalised world.  She will emphasise it has shaped the world we live in today and cannot be replaced either by high-speed rail or video conferencing. www.aviationclub.org.uk
