ABSTRACT
The article urges that to ensure environmental protection in the commercial aeronautics, legislation be passed to place the onus on the manufacturers and not by penalizing those using the equipment. It says that imposing higher costs on an industry, which is facing vast economic challenges, will have a negative effect on the economy. Change should be focused on manufacturers as was done in the U.S. car industry where people could drive the car they had already purchased.
