Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)


The project REsearch on a CRuiser Enabled Air Transport Environment (RECREATE) is about the introduction and airworthiness of cruiser-feeder operations for civil aircraft. Cruiser-feeder operations are investigated as a promising pioneering idea for the air transport of the future.
The top level objective of the project is to demonstrate on a preliminary design level that cruiser-feeder operations (as a concept to reduce fuel burn and CO2 emission levels) can be shown to comply with the airworthiness requirements for civil aircraft. The project is funded through the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission. Work Package (WP) 1 has the objective to substantiate that viable and acceptable concepts for cruiser/feeder operations exist. In this deliverable the initial operational concept of the RECREATE cruiser/feeder is presented.
