Aerospace is a quality-based industry that follows very strict rules with regards to safety of the equipment. These features did not make the aerospace a suitable candidate for aerospace industry. The heavy development of sensors used in the mass production of ground transportation vehicles provided some support towards the implementation of low-mass sensing devices in the aerospace industry. It is well known that the main concern of the aerospace industry is mass. Any safety-related equipment installed on an aircraft will add significant mass unless those systems are microsystems. Once the first inertial, pressure, temperature or flow sensors were implemented on prototypes, the concept of microsystems in the aerospace industry gained more interest. Thus, pressure and flow sensors that could be installed to feed data during flight missions from the LP or even HP comoressor within the engine were developed. The major advantage of this technology was expanded into the cockpit, where most of the apparata are screens connected to a computation unit, which yields the needed information in the classic format of a dial indicator.
The Special Issue of Micromachines is intended to open debate about the present realizations in the aerospace field and come up with futuristic concepts that have the potential of being implemented. Contributions in all above areas are welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
