About This Series

The Sustainable Aviation book series focuses on sustainability in aviation considering all aspects of the field. The books are developed in partnership with the International Sustainable Aviation Research Society (SARES), and include contributed volumes consisting of select contributions to SARES international symposiums and conferences, as well as cutting edge monographs and professional books focused on all aspects of sustainable aviation. The series aims at publishing state-of-the-art research and development in areas including, but not limited to:

  • Green and renewable energy resources and aviation technologies

  • Aircraft engine, control systems, production, storage, efficiency and planning

  • Exploring the potential of integrating renewables within airports

  • Sustainable infrastructure development under a changing climate

  • Training and awareness facilities with aviation sector and social levels

  • Teaching and professional development in renewable energy technologies and sustainability
