The article discusses the presentation of Gerry Coates in the Aviation Industry Association Annual Conference in Tauranga, New Zealand in July 21, 2008. He tackled the brief history of commercial aviation and answered questions about the rising cost of oil-based aviation fuel and greenhouse gas emissions from planes. For the developments in the aviation industry, he mentioned new aircraft design concepts such as the Blended Wing Body, lightweight materials, and new free flight routing and landing and take-off procedures.
