Airspace Issue 29 - Quarter 2, 2015

This edition of Airspace reflects the theme of the CANSO Global ATM Summit and 19th AGM – "Strengthening Air Traffic Management".

We shine a spotlight on ATNS, the Summit/AGM host, and its work to improve efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions. Spain's Transport Minister talks about how ENAIRE has improved ATM performance. The Dominican Institute for Civil Aviation is strengthening ATM with a new automated air control centre.

Vietnam ATM Corporation looks at the challenges for ATM of 12% annual growth in air traffic and how the Vietnamese Government is meeting the challenge.

We look at the problems that erroneous, missing, duplicate, and multiple flight plans have on operations and the steps CANSO is taking in mitigation.

Teri Bristol talks about how FAA's deployment of En Route Automation Modernization (ERAM) has increased capacity and improved efficiency.

In Asia Pacific a number of ANSPs have joined forces to develop and trial multi-nodal cross-border air traffic flow management.

Avinor shares its experiences in implementing curved PBN approaches, saving fuel, reducing emissions and minimising noise.

We also report on ICAO recommendations on flight tracking as a result of the loss of Flight MH370. We examine what these recommendations mean for ATM and some of the solutions including ADS-C, space based ADS-B and SITA's Flight Tracker.
