Future of Aviation: My interview by La Tribune

Future of Aviation: My interview by La Tribune

The green world I want to live in, when I say green, it is not just only flora and fauna, it’s also about the oceans, the air that we breathe, the clear vision that my eyes want to see.

It was such a wonderful and proud moment when I was esteemed this week to be interviewed for the event in Aeroscopia Museum, Blagnac, France where I draw up my ideas on the future of aviation and specified my perspective to have solar-powered batteries, powering the aircraft of the future, harnessing wind energy to produce electricity, and the same goes with the hydel power projects.

The interview was all about an individual’s perspective regarding various activities and their measures towards the environment. And, it’s obvious “Green world, Clean world”. That’s why I would love to share a glimpse of my interview that exactly reflects my vision towards the environment.

In the frame of the Aerospace & Mobility activities, TBS deliberately brings its support as it is time for solidarity, diversification, and innovation. This is key to restore confidence in the ecosystem, to unite, and draw up new perspectives for the future of the aeronautics industry.

Interestingly, Mr. Jean-Brice Dumont, the President of CORAC, Executive Vice-President Engineering of Airbus, in his capacity as "Inspiring Guest", gave an exclusive interview drawing up the road-map to achieve a de-carbonized aircraft in 2035.

Let me connect you to my vision and views on the future of air transport in the face of climate change through the series of these questions:

Q1. The clean plane or a non-polluting plane, do you believe it? and why?

I would definitely place the environment over profits. My vision is to promote clean non-polluting planes.

The onus of protecting the environment lies exclusively with us.

The lack of filtration due to depletion of the ozone layer and growing concern of the El-Nino effect will have drastic effects on the oceanic as well as on the geo physical qualities of the earth affecting industries like fishing, farming, including livestock farming, telecommunication, to name a few.

To ever increasing number of flights, we are also increasing the size of the carbon footprints as these are byproducts of burning fossil fuels.

The impending dangers associated with environmental concerns can be minimised by using the substitute fuel like biofuels, to alleviate the perils associated with these.

Q2. What is your vision for the future of Aviation and Transportation?

Green world I want to live in, when I say green, it is not just only flora and fauna, it’s also about the oceans, the air that we breathe, the clear vision that my eyes want to see. A pollution free environment, the future generations should also reap the benefits. I want to create such footprints which will enable the future generations to use these footprints to create their own milestones.

We as humans, have innovated, discovered and invented various methods on how to channelise the natural resources readily available to us like air, water, sunlight. My vision is to have solar powered batteries, powering the aircrafts of the future, harnessing wind energy to produce electricity and the same goes with hydel power projects.

Thanks to my project on using Artificial intelligence tools to improve flight safety in the futuristic vision of having a smart cockpit.

Regarding Transportation, I developed a model for Customer Excitement for airlines with the internet of things and artificial intelligence.

These innovations when incorporated effectively will lead to sustained business growth and explorations.

Q3. What is the role of Aviation in the economy, the new challenges?

Economy always thrives on international trade and the aviation industry is by itself a behemoth and it supports trade, people, both business, leisure, and the tourism industry. It supports all the productional engineering, industrial engineering.

New Challenges is to re-build the confidence of the travelling public by adopting safer measures especially in view of the pandemic which has wreaked havoc in the lives of all and sundry. The new normal is what should be embraced wholeheartedly because the earlier we accept the reality, the better can we enhance the quality of our lives.

We need an economy that works for the planet, not against it.

Q4. What do you think is necessary for a full recovery in the future?

Only man can make or break himself, so it lies within us to identify our strengths so that we can tide over the crisis that has been plaguing us for long. Government Support, International co-operation among various agencies associated with air travel. Creating opportunities to develop business in the aviation industry by taking measures which will be beneficial in creating an ecosystem which will lay emphasis on the green universe facilitating both manufacturers and the end users.

Role of artificial intelligence cannot be undermined as data sourcing analysis inclusive of algorithmic mathematical equations to enable full recovery of the industry causing minimal damage to the environment.

Q5. At last, if you have one question to ask about the Aeronautic sector, which one would it be?

Being an airline pilot, captaining a commercial jet I would want to ask:

How quickly is It possible to bring alternate sources of fuel, Environment friendly fuel and how easy would it be to introduce it to fragments of the aviation industry especially the Original Equipment Manufacturers Or the OEM’S.

The Concluding Thoughts

TBS is reinforcing its presence and impact with the recent creation of the Societal Transition Directorate and the reaffirmation of its differentiating activities in "aerospace & mobility" and in "artificial intelligence & data analytics".

Hence, TBS brings its support to meet the challenges of intelligent and fluid mobility: more frugal, sustainable, responsible and which optimizes the passenger experience in a systematic and holistic manner.

Thanks to the team who gave me this robust opportunity to reflect on my thoughts on the future of aviation.
