IJSA handles a broad range of aviation-related issues with particular emphasis on environmental problems associated with sustainability. Aviation is cited as one of the major sources of noise and air pollution and considered a prominent cause of global warming. Future trends in aviation could constitute a major impediment to having sustainable development in economic, social and environmental perspectives. Sustainable aviation is a long term strategy aiming to offer innovative solutions to the challenges facing the aviation industry.
Topics covered include
- Sustainable aviation; green aircraft and airlines
- Environmental impacts: emissions/noise, global warming/climate change
- Renewable energy sources; alternative/green aviation fuels
- Propulsion technologies for aerospace vehicles
- Combustion instabilities, innovative combustion technologies
- Energy, exergy, performance analysis; flight and fluid mechanics
- Energy recovery systems, alternative/renewable/clean energy technologies
- Mathematical modelling, numerical/experimental methods, optimisation
- Materials, measurement techniques and sensors
- Life cycle design and life cycle assessment; cost efficiency; waste/recycling
- Aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul; airworthiness, reliability/safety
- Sustainable aircraft design, technological change, innovation, research and development
- Strategic planning, governmental legislation, policy-making
- Aviation management, fleet planning/scheduling; air traffic management; future air transport
- Airport design, management, planning, development
The aviation industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. It can be viewed as making a positive contribution to sustainability. IJSA, a peer-reviewed, international, multi-disciplinary journal, aims to address current issues in the field of aviation such as improving aircraft fuel efficiency, fostering use of biofuels, minimising environmental impact, mitigating GHG emissions and reducing of engine and airframe noise.
IJSA aims to bring solutions to all the major sectors of the aviation industry in terms of sustainability. To that end, it is of interest to the active and creative community of researchers, educators and practitioners not only in mainstream engineering (e.g., aeronautical, mechanical, civil, chemical, environmental, and industrial) but also in physics, biology, economics and management.
IJSA publishes original research papers, review papers, viewpoint articles, book reviews and technical notes. Special issues are devoted to important topics in the area and guest edited by key figures in the area.

Energy trees and energy ships
16 December, 2021
Wind and solar power must be maximised if we are to make the transition to global renewable energy by the middle of the century. That is the assertion of Max Platzer of AeroHydro Research and Technology Associates in Pebble Beach, California, USA, writing in the International Journal Sustainable Aviation. Hybrid wind-solar power-generation technology could be one key to this aspiration without requiring us to use more land resources or disturbing the wider environment. An energy tree would add a third dimension to solar panels and wind turbines. Additionally, the "energy ship" concept would allow us to exploit vast wind resources across our oceans as well as extract carbon dioxide from seawater to produce renewable aviation fuel [...]More details...
