Inspiring innovations

We had a great discussion yesterday, during our morning coffee break, about innovations and how they become part of peoples’ daily life wherever they live. Many of these interesting inventions did not sound too realistic and doable when launched, but after a while it’s hard to think of life without them. I want to share the most interesting ones with my readers.

Here’s some of our findings…circular runways, drones, online shopping, space tourism and eLearning. While throwing thoughts and ideas around these topics we realized how quickly some inventions change the way people live. Who believed 20 years ago that so many things would be purchased online?

We collected some interesting articles and links about these items. Taka a moment to ventilate your brain, have a cup of coffee and check out some of the links below.

Could circular runways solve some of aviation’s challenges?

Ground handling training

Is online training a way to ensure that all ground handling employees share the same basic skills and knowledge, and can this be verified when audited?
