Scientists from the Institute for Flight System Dynamics at Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany have demonstrated the feasibility of flying a brain-controlled aircraft.

Mandatory real-time tracking of airliners seen taking 2-3 years - UN official

KUALA LUMPUR, May 27 (Reuters) - Global standards to track aircraft in real time may not be ready for two to three years, a senior official with the U.N. aviation agency said on Tuesday, although the process could be accelerated as airlines adopt voluntary measures.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has formed a group to come up with methods for tracking by the end of September, responding to public concern following the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 mystery.

IATA said its members would implement measures voluntarily, before any rules were in place.

"Typically a global standard can take 2-3 years to put in place," Nancy Graham, director of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Air Navigation Bureau, told reporters in Kuala Lumpur.

"This will expedite that because we will have learned a lot of lessons from the voluntary path."

Graham was speaking after a conference of aviation regulators and industry officials in the Malaysian capital tried to flesh out details of new tracking standards two weeks after ICAO nations agreed to set up the task force.

But the meeting left questions unanswered over how much the new systems could cost - and feed through to higher fares - and how smoothly they could be implemented across global airlines.

"The bigger airlines that fly globally might have the cash for it, but the smaller players already have their margins stressed and don't have much money left to spare," said one airline industry official who asked not to be identified.

Regular flight-tracking was one of the key recommendations of French investigators after the loss of Air France Flight 447 in 2009. Aviation experts say previous attempts to reach agreement on tracking and other reforms in the aftermath of that disaster have been delayed by uncertainties over the cost and control of infrastructure.

Inmarsat Group, a satellite company whose data helped track MH370, has offered to provide airlines with tracking at no cost. Rival firms such as Iridium Communications , however, say outfitting a jet with the tracking system could cost more than $100,000.

Malaysian investigators suspect someone shut off MH370's data links making the plane impossible to track, prompting Prime Minister Najib Razak to call for the ICAO to adopt real-time tracking of civilian aircraft.

The Boeing 777 jet vanished from civilian radar screens less than an hour after take-off from Kuala Lumpur en route to Beijing on March 8.

Graham rejected criticism that regulators and the industry should have been quicker to act on calls for real-time tracking following the 2009 disaster.

She said ICAO examined three different reports on the Air France crash and made 25 recommendations as a result. Real-time tracking would not have prevented that or the MH370 disappearance, she said.

"There was no requirement to develop a rule for global tracking out of the Air France incident," Graham said. "That does not mean we should not do it. It just means we should not connect the two together."

Having America is also a negative, because if given a choice between Canada nad America, most European tourists will choose America.
I think many Americans drive to Canada rather than fly, whereas you need to fly to get into Australia.

That being said, the high cost of operating out of Toronto Pearson due to government charges and taxes is not helping this airport develop into a major transit hub for the Americans. Rather, there is an increasing movement of Canadians living in the Toronto area driving to Buffalo airport for substantial savings.

As happened in Hong Kong, the new airport will keep the IATA code: NAT. The old one, located in Parnamirim, will become a military base only. Last year, it handled 2.6 million pax.

Mexico's flag carrier Aeromexico has selected Panasonic Avionics Corporation as its global in-flight broadband Wi-Fi provider. Under the deal, Panasonic will provide the in-flight internet service for nine of the airline's new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft fleet.

And São Paulo Terminal (Guarulhos, Congonhas, Viracopos and the collection of smaller airports in the macrometropolitan area), won't be far away from the 70 million passengers mark.

Chinese aircraft manufacturer China Aviation Industry General Aircraft (CAIGA) has started trial production of its TA600 amphibious aircraft, claimed to be the world's largest of its kind.

As if this will help when people travel during the incubation period.
Ebola-hit countries must screen all departing travellers - WHO

GENEVA, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Authorities in countries affected by Ebola should check people departing at international airports, seaports and major border crossings and stop any with signs of the virus from travelling, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday.

The U.N. health agency reiterated that the risk of getting infected with Ebola on an aircraft was small as infected people are usually too ill to travel, and said that the risk is also very low to travellers in affected countries, namely Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone.

There was no need for wider travel or trade restrictions, the WHO said in a statement.

"Affected countries are requested to conduct exit screening of all persons at international airports, seaports and major land crossings, for unexplained febrile illness consistent with potential Ebola infection. Any person with an illness consistent with EVD (Ebola Virus Disease) should not be allowed to travel unless the travel is part of an appropriate medical evacuation."

If a traveller has stayed in areas where Ebola cases have been reported recently, he or she should seek medical care at the first sign of illness - fever, headache, sore throat, diarrhoea, vomiting, among other symptoms, the WHO said, noting: "Early treatment can improve prognosis."

Countries that do not have Ebola cases must strengthen their capacity to detect and contain any cases immediately, the WHO said, but it did not recommend any active screening of arriving passengers.

"It is better if countries do screening on the front-end," WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl told Reuters.

Engineers at BAE Systems' Advanced Technology Centre are working on a concept to give aircraft human-like 'skin', which is claimed to detect wind speed, temperature, physical strain and movement more accurately than existing technology.
