Abstract

Given the increasing environmental concerns accompanying technological advancements, there is a growing need for more effective, efficient and sustainable development. Recent studies in aviation are focused on environmental sensitivity and sustainable development, with Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) being one of the most effective methods for determining and comparing environmental impacts. This article is significant for its insights into designing environmentally friendly aircraft, comparing different aircraft types using LCA and highlighting the need for sustainable practices in the aviation industry. In the review, several studies related to the subject are summarized, and it provides insights into the vehicles covered in the studies, the extent to which the life cycle process is considered, the functional unit, the databases used, the software employed, the environmental effects analyzed and the corresponding results.
