Vertical flight efficiency @ airports
Improved vertical flight efficiency during
climb (CCO) and descent (CDO) can save
substantial amounts of fuel and CO2 and also
reduce noise levels in the vicinity of airports.
The lower the level segment, the higher the
additional fuel consumption^1.
Together with interested stakeholders
and EUROCONTROL’s Aviation Sustainability Unit, the PRC has developed a methodology to
compute level off segments during climb and descent at airports.
The results are shown in the graphs below :
