During the last few years a number of visionary and strategic documents on the future of aeronautics have been developed world-wide. What they all have in common is a focus on societal needs and some key challenges for aeronautics to meet those needs.
In connection with the meeting of the ICAS Programme Committee, early October 2003 in Sorrento - Italy, a one-day workshop was held on the theme:
The WORKSHOP GOALS/OBJECTIVES were stated as follows:
- Identify things that are of common interest (or differs)
- Develop creative ideas regarding a global vision for these key challenges
The speakers were asked to focus on "key aviation challenges" like safety & security, environmental goals, ATM-issues - issues for which a global vision should be very useful.
The summary report, including several appendices, can be found below.
