Abstract

The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for European aeronautics and air transport, published by the Advisory Council for Aviation Research and innovation in Europe (ACARE) chaired by the European Commission and the aviation community, believes that aviation cargo transportation will be the first application of civil unmanned air transport.There are already several versions of small size remote controlled piloted aircraft; these are the platforms from which reach larger cargo planes. In order to allow these aircrafts to operate in safe environments and at compatible costs, constant research, development and flight tests, and trials are necessary to make the technology mature and reliable. This work present the results of a cost-benefit analysis applied to a strategic air transport infrastructure. The project here presented aims to develop and enhance flight infrastructures in order to improve the performance and operational safety levels, in anticipation of increases in cargo flights dedicated to the transport of aeronautical and non-aeronautical production. It also intends to create primary infrastructures dedicated to the installation of new industrial operators, in order to develop the test Bed function for new aeronautical and aerospace technological solutions. The intervention concerns the Grottaglie airport in Southern Italy.
