Global Air Traffic Growth – Challenges and Opportunities for China
Asia-Pacific region is leading global air traffic growth today. China is one of the fastest growing and largest aviation markets today and in 2032 and it will have soon the highest domestic traffic in the world. Increasing congestion and the need for sustainable development requires coordinated measures by all aviation stakeholders to be applied rapidly. An ideally suited set of effective and interoperable solutions will ensure that airlines can operate their fleet more cost efficiently within the given slot and airspace constraints, while serving all domestic and regional market demands; and passengers will enjoy shorter travelling time, while emissions will be significantly reduced.

Bombardier Strategic Technology: Preparing the Future of Civil Aviation
Bombardier Aerospace is an innovative corporation, having launched 31 different aircraft since 1989. The company operates in the business, regional and single-aisle commercial markets. The aerospace industry has specific aspects that require careful and thorough development of new technology ahead of inclusion in new products: Long and expensive aircraft development cycles, Long Product Lifetime and Intensive Capital Needs. These aspects and an increasing awareness of aviation impacts on the environment will guide the industry approach to technology development in the coming years. The paper will present the prospects for progress in various areas of aircraft technology: airframe and configuration, systems and structures, illustrating them with specific Bombardier applications. It will then review technology insertions on the Global 7000, a new high-speed long range business jet and on the Cseries, the new single-aisle family of airliners, currently in certification flight testing. This airplane, produced in part in China, leads the contribution of Bombardier to the general effort of the world aerospace industry towards sustainability.

Research and Development Towards Sustainable Aviation Industry Development
According to Boeing’s Current Market Outlook 2013, China remains to be one of the most promising aviation markets, where 5,580 new airplanes will be delivered and the total fleet size is forecasted to triple over the next 20 years. To enable the huge market growth potentials and help Boeing operates healthy core business in this market, Boeing Research & Technology – China positions itself to be a valued partner, delivering knowledge and technologies for mutual benefits of Boeing and China, by addressing the key challenges for commercial and environmental sustainability of aviation industry. The outcomes from these activities contribute to preparing local infrastructure and support system for increased fleet, and reduced environmental impact by aviation industry. The presentation will describe how Boeing has chosen and invested research activities in (1) Sustainable aviation biofuels (2) Recycling of carbon fiber reinforced composites (3) Airspace operation efficiency (4) Aircraft maintenance capabilities and efficiencies (5) Future talent development in China for aviation & aerospace sector These activities will ultimately contribute to sustainable aviation development in this fastest growing and largest commercial aviation market in the world.
