With the entry of aviation into the jet age and the development of commercial air transport, the question of pollution (noise, combustion emissions, etc.) generated by aircraft has become increasingly acute for players in the sector. When and why did the aeronautics industry start to concern itself with the environment ? This seminar summarises some of the major stages in the consideration of environmental issues in aviation, from the 1950s to the 1990s.
