NASA's Environmentally Responsible Aviation (ERA) Project is moving forward with its research efforts to "green" the skies.

ERA is developing aircraft concepts and technologies to help reduce the impact of aviation on the environment during the next 30 years.

Fay Collier, ERA project manager based at NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., will unveil the project's next steps, which include large-scale demonstrations, at the 51st American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) Aerospace Sciences Meeting, Monday, Jan. 7, near Dallas.

The demonstrations, which are funded by NASA's Integrated System Research Program in the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate, will focus on five areas -- aircraft drag reduction, weight reduction, fuel and noise reduction, emissions reductions, and fuel consumption and community noise reduction.
