What is ASPIRE?
Airservices Australia, Airways New Zealand and the Federal Aviation Administration joined forces to create the Asia & South Pacific Initiative to Reduce Emissions (ASPIRE).
The joint venture is designed to lessen the environmental impact of aviation across Asia and the South Pacific with each partner to focus on developing ideas that contribute to improved environmental standards and operational procedures in aviation.
With aviation activity increasing all the time, ASPIRE is about raising the industry’s environmental performance in reducing fuel burn and carbon dioxide emissions.
The agreement, will showcase the region’s leadership in global aviation emissions reductions by exploring improvements to operational procedures in all aspects of flight to improve on current best practices and existing technologies.
It is expected that ASPIRE will provide the means to measure the environmental performance of current air transport systems in the region and guide the development of long term actions to minimise the aviation industry’s impact on the South Pacific.
The ASPIRE agreement was signed in Singapore on February 18, 2008 by the Chief Executive Officers of Airservices Australia and Airways New Zealand, Mr Greg Russell and Mr Ashley Smout and the Acting Administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration, Mr Robert Sturgell.
Since the group has been established three demonstration flights have been successfully undertaken to gather data and understanding of what is required to implement special emission savings procedures in the near future.
Emission savings per flight across the pacific ranged from 11,000 – 24,000 kg of CO2.
