When the pilot of a Boeing aircraft changes course to avoid bad weather or an airport approach to save fuel, the airplane may be following a flight strategy designed by engineer Bill Peterson and his team in Commercial Airplanes Environmental Performance.

“Our focus is on operational efficiency. When an aircraft enters into service with a Boeing customer, we want to make sure it operates at peak efficiency on every flight, from takeoff to landing,” Peterson said.

A primary focus now is on implementing technology that will enable operational efficiencies on the new 777X jetliner.

Peterson and his team are developing 777X environmental performance targets for reductions in emissions and community noise for each phase of flight from departure through arrival. Typical targets are defined in a range, such as saving 400 pounds (181 kilograms) to 600 pounds (272 kilograms) of CO2 and reducing community noise by 1 to 3 decibels during departure and arrival.
