2002). Since then, various climate impacts of aircraft have been investigated, including the formation of contrails and cirrus clouds as well as certain other effects of particle emissions (IPCC 1999; Lee and Raper 2003; Lee 2004; Schumann 1996; Schumann and Wending 1990). 2). Those problems included aircraft noise, localised air pollution, global atmospheric effects, impacts of airport and infrastructure construction, water and soil pollution, waste generation, and environmental degradation resulting from aircraft accidents and incidents (Crayston 1992; ICAO 2001; Price and Probert 1995).

Aviation environmental impacts were not sufficiently prominent to merit discussion in Sealy’s (1966) Geography of Air Transport. However, the problem of aircraft noise had prompted a certain amount of public concern since the 1950s (Freer 1994). In 1966, the environmental problems caused by civil aircraft were discussed at a conference in London involving representatives of twenty-six nations and eleven international aeronautical organisations; the main aviation environmental issue at that time was considered to be aircraft noise (Price and Probert 1995; Stratford 1974).

Various other measures of the size of the aviation industry exist, including measures of the size and composition of the global fleet (including the total number of aircraft, the number of aircraft in service, the number of aircraft parked or retired, the number of new aircraft deliveries and the numbers of aircraft of specific sizes or types). In addition to measures focusing on aircraft numbers, growth can also be measured in terms of frequencies (the number of flights undertaken by airlines), the number of routes flown or the number of new routes opened.
