Aerospace engineering is the engineering field concerned with aircraft and spacecraft development and operating. Thus it correspondingly has two major and actually overlapping sectors, as aeronautical and astronautic engineering. Aeronautical engineering was the original term for the field, but as flight technology advanced to include craft operating in outer space as well, this means the field of astronautics, the broader term of aerospace engineering has come since a while into common use. Aerospace engineering, particularly the astronautics branch, is implying the so-called rocket science. The scientific and technological developments in this field have without doubt made possible achieving main progress in the human mobility field not only on the Earth but making important steps forward in discovering the outer space. The SESAR 2020 approach of Single European Sky ATM Research Programme is mainly including research for improving Europe’s Air Traffic Management, ATM [10]. On the other side using aerospace engineering for getting Sustainable Development means also setting up regional and global Emergency Programs in order to support disaster response operations through the provision of satellite data. In this regard the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER) is implemented in order to support disaster management activities. Made experiences during the years in different human activity fields have proven that science and technology can achieve almost any desired result, surely operating within the reality governed by the laws of physics, if the needed financial means and competent people are available. The multitude of technological possibilities is currently very large and constantly growing larger. The role and challenges of aerospace engineering for getting global sustainability by mitigating risk will be debated and its possible contribution in this regard will be emphasized.
