Aviation is a force for economic and social development, encourages investment, stimulates infrastructure expansion that benefits various industries and has significant domestic and international economic linkages. These benefits, however, are provided at a high environmental cost. Locally, communities around airports often suffer from noise and air pollution. Around the globe, the carbon intensity of the aviation sector has posed significant challenges with respect to climate change adaptation and mitigation.
This taster lecture discusses:
- The environmental performance of the aviation industry
- The public reaction to aviation’s impact on the environment
- How regulators and various stakeholders have reacted to the pressure to control and mitigate negative externalities
- The complexity of environmental KPIs
Presenter: Dr Marina Efthymiou, Program Chair of MSc Aviation Leadership
Dr Marina Efthymiou is Assistant professor in Aviation Management and the course director of MSc Management (Aviation Leadership) at Dublin City University. Prior to this, she was working for the University of West London and before that for EUROCONTROL – the International Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation based in Brussels.

About this Event
We are bringing together aviation experts to discuss wellbeing solutions around the human factors and safety challenges.
* * * * * * * * * * * * *
This year, the European Aviation Wellbeing Conference is organised by the European Aviation Wellbeing Committee, a non-profit organisation established to reduce the gap and act as a mediator between regulators, organisations and aviation professionals to enhance safety and resilience.
The conference brings together a diverse range of aviation leaders sharing the same vision towards integrating resilience, and improving both mental and physical performance within the aviation industry.
"We hold a strong belief that only from personal experience in the industry and a deep understanding of our specific environment, we can bring solutions that are practical and sustainable and that matches the daily challenges of our industry. Only through collective cooperation we can influence sustainable change" - Valentina Fitzpatrick, EAWC Founder.
The EAWC conference is the only platform that focuses on the human challenges, and uses its own sources and talent within the industry to deliver a message of transformation and growth into a new holistic culture in aviation.
Last year it was highlighted the well-known challenges in our industry. This year, the discussion is moving forward taking positive action focusing on both practical and theoretical solutions that come from the core of our industry.

Information for Pilots:
Freecall 123.450 for airfield information and joining instructions. is an uncontrolled airport so all communications from the ground are for information purposes only, all manoeuvres are at pilot discretion. We will be as helpful as possible with setting up the circuit and assisting all aircraft on arrival and departure. Maintain a good visual awareness, the circuit can be very busy with up to 5 or 6 aircraft at any given time. Maintain good separation and do 'S' turns if necessary on the approach. Be aware aircraft may also be backtracking. Most aircraft will be arriving about 1300 local time.
All circuits will be done to the WEST of the airfield. Left hand circuit if 01 is in use and right hand circuit if 19 is in use. On the aerial view attached below there are a few highlighted areas which we would like all pilots to avoid to create as little disruption for the neighbours as possible, this is gratefully appreciated.
On the ground there will be marshallers to assist with parking.
For departures and Go-Arounds we would ask that runway heading is maintained until 500ft AGL for noise abatement then make a left or right turnout as required.
An alternative airfield is "Aughrim", which is 1.8 niles North of Derryogue landing on runway 35 only.
Enjoy the fantastic the scenery the Mournes have to offer on the way!
Information for everyone else:
No drones under any circumstances.
We ask that dogs are not brought to the day, as they can run into harms way and cause problems.
Also aircraft can be dangerous and fragile. Never approach an aircraft that has a running engine, propellors can become invisible when turning. Please respect people's airplanes, do not touch any aircraft or any propellor, propellors can start without warning if moved. Do not cross the runway unless escorted at the designated crossing point.

Hangar Opening Times: 10am – 5pm both days (SAT & SUN) via Gate 3.
We’ll have multiple volunteer Tour Guides on site both days all being well to help people at various aircraft around our two Second World War hangars, if they require.

We have extensive Car Parking now with our new parking facilities being made available directly outside our fence — to the Left as you drive past the prison walls. Visitors will simply walk across to our gates and be directed from there through the middle gates, up to registration and in through Hangar 2's doors on the right.
