Skyway magazine

Skyway magazine

EUROCONTROL's official magazine, Skyway has developed into an authoritative voice, examining in depth the major challenges to improving European aviation performance.

Skyway issue 75

In this issue

In this issue we focus on the next generation of airspace users – space tourist vehicles, electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) urban air mobility vehicles, high-altitude platforms, drones and flying cars. We look at the airspace management challenge these entrants will bring and how regulators and airspace managers are planning their introduction alongside aircraft flying today.

Eamonn Brennan

Adapting aviation to "New Normals"

Throughout the pandemic, aviation has proved to be remarkably resilient and adaptable. Here, I fully appreciate the massive losses, the failures of several airlines, the huge amounts of public money put into the industry and the tragic impact on the lives of many who worked in aviation or who relied on aviation for their livelihoods. However, the industry has survived and it has adapted.
