What is next in business aviation: a move towards sustainability or supersonic flight?

Perhaps the utilisation of only zero-emission aircraft or supersonic aircraft is not the best solution? Exercising both types of transportation in combination entails its benefits. This could allow users of private and business aviation to practice sustainable options during day-to-day commutes and pre-planned travel. However, and in contrast the use of supersonic jets becomes convenient when responding to unexpected emergencies through its ability to attain greater speeds.

While the topic is highly relevant in the current environment, the sustainability of aircraft fuel or propulsion is far from being the only factor in the future of green business aviation. Having infrastructure that can operate in a sustainable manner will be just as important as operating zero-emissions aircraft. Implementing optimisations in day-to-day operations, researching new ways to minimise waste and employ practices of a circular economy should be the main goals of MROs to become sustainable in the coming decades. Being one of the leading business and regional aircraft MRO providers, Jet MS is already experimenting with the reuse of scrapped aircraft fuselages as decorations or learning platforms, optimizing our processes with LEAN system, and striving to create a greener tomorrow in aviation.” – commented Jet Maintenance Solutions CEO Vytis Zalimas.
