Present understanding indicates that there is no imminent threat of ozone reduction from any type of existing aircraft, although substantial uncertainties remain. Thus there appears to be no immediate requirement to develop regulations that would mandate a reduction in cruise-altitude emissions of subsonic or supersonic aircraft. There is a clear necessity for continued study to reduce remaining uncertainties and to establish a uniform and internationally agreed accurate emission measurement scheme. Building a framework for regulation (if necessary) of future types of high-altitude aircraft, such as those frequently referred to as a "second-generation SST," or the even higher-flying hypersonic transport (HST), is also necessary.
