The industry is reducing emissions, decreasing fuel use, increasing efficiency and developing new technologies to alter its environmental impacts. The November issue of EARTH magazine focuses on the changes to learn how the aviation industry is using synthetic fuels and engineering, and even altering common flight plans to keep up with changing protocols and dwindling resources.
