Greener Taxiing Operations being validated at ENAC

In the first week of July, the AEON Consortium met in Toulouse at the ENAC facilities to carry out the final evaluation of the operational concept that integrates engine-off taxiing techniques such as TaxiBots, E-Taxi, WheelTugs and Single-Engine Taxiing. The evaluation of AEON's solution began almost a year ago when the Consortium asked the Advisory

Engine-off taxiing: a sound and scientifically based concept

The AEON project aims at developing an innovative concept of green taxiing operations based on the coordinated application of autonomous, non-autonomous, and single-engine taxiing operations. A preliminary version of the operational concept and associated tools and HMIs have already been developed and are going to be validated with the involvement of operational experts, mainly air
