The German Aerospace Centre (DLR), in close cooperation with Deutsche Lufthansa and the Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC), successfully conducted flight experiments to measure the emissions and contrails of new GEnx aircraft engines during en-route cruising.
The Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC) is an international non-profit air navigation service provider, operated by EUROCONTROL on behalf of four States – Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
MUAC ensures that aircraft flying in the upper airspace (above 24,500 feet or 7.5 km) over
the Benelux and north-west Germany can do so safely and efficiently.
To manage this busy and complex airspace, MUAC is organised on a multinational, cross-border basis. It is a working example of how European cooperation, both at a civil and military level, can result in safety, capacity and efficiency benefits for all.
