A preliminary assessment of the environmental performance of new commercial supersonic transport aircraft.

This research explores policy approaches that can improve real-world fuel consumption performance, especially for compliance with the 2015-2020 standards and the development of the 2025-2030 standards.

Summarizes the key elements of both new regulations (the new type-approval framework and amendment to regulation EU 2017/1151) and provides references for further reading for those interested in more details.
