Aeronave cu Aripi Fixe Inteligente – Demonstrator Tehnologic Integrat
The "Clean Sky" project represents the response of the European aeronautical industry to the demands of the public and private environment regarding the development of aircraft with a reduced impact on the environment and which offer the possibility of sustained economic growth. The research project, with a planned duration of seven years, will combine public and private capacities in order to develop and introduce advanced technologies for the next generation of aircraft. The main purpose of these technologies is to reduce polluting emissions, the noise generated by air traffic and to reduce aircraft fuel consumption.

Clean Sky Commune Enterprise Program: Ctr. JTI-01/2010
Project acronym: SFWA
Project duration (months): 103
Project start date (month/year): June 1, 2008
Project completion date (month/year): December 31, 2017
By introducing technologies with a lower impact on the environment, the “Clean Sky” project will contribute to the sustained economic growth of the aeronautical industry in Europe. Even if at the moment air traffic is a relatively small source of greenhouse gases, its proportion will increase as a result of forecasts of an increase in the volume of air traffic in the near future. Protecting the environment requires immediate actions in order to develop “clean” means of air transport.
In addition, the European aeronautical industry is in close competition with the North American and Asian industries. Therefore, the support of the public environment in the development of this industry is of primary importance. The “Clean Sky” initiative is based on a collaboration structure between the public and the private environment, represented by the main actors of the European aeronautical industry, in order to develop new technologies for the future generation of aircraft.
