Developing a UK Aviation Strategy – Heathrow implementation and the future of airport capacity across the UK

14 September 2017

London, UK


This WEET morning seminar will examine the development of a new Aviation Strategy for the UK and a National Policy Statement (NPS) on airport expansion. Following the consultation and review of the draft NPS and the consultation on the design and use of UK airspace, delegates will assess the planning framework for future expansion and the policy priorities for sustainability in the aviation sector. With the release of the Heathrow 2.0 sustainable expansion plan and the Airports Commission report calling for an effective air quality policy, sessions will focus on managing the impacts of expansion on air quality, local surface transport and the wider effects on communities throughout the implementation of an expanded Heathrow Airport.

Second ICAO Conference on Aviation and Alternative Fuels

11-13 October 2017

Mexico City, Mexico


Resolution A39-2 passed at the 39th Session of the ICAO Assembly reaffirmed the need for alternative fuels to be developed and deployed in an economically, socially and environmentally acceptable manner. States are encouraged to take action at national and international levels. This conference will build upon the results of the ICAO Alternative Fuels Seminar held in February 2017, and of the First ICAO Conference on Aviation and Alternative Fuels held in November 2009, which endorsed the use of sustainable alternative fuels for aviation as an important means of reducing aviation emissions and established the ICAO Global Framework for Aviation Alternative Fuels.


The conference will consider recommendations for action on key topics including developments in research and certification, financing and assistance programmes, challenges and policy making, and defining the ICAO vision on aviation alternative fuels and future objectives.

Aircraft Noise – Can We Build Community Tolerance?

12 October 2017

London, UK


The Royal Aeronautical Society’s annual Greener by Design conference will this year focus on aircraft noise and the challenge of getting community engagement, understanding and ultimately tolerance at a time of growing and modernised airspace operation near busiest airports. The conference will look at the issue from the recipient’s perspective, hear of the latest research, share experience from the consultative front-line and seek a better understanding of the issues and potential mitigating measures. This event should be a timely opportunity for all parts of the aviation industry, local authorities and community groups, together with government, regulators and academics with an interest in noise.
