Airspace Issue 30 - Quarter 3, 2015

This edition of Airspace has a special focus on the environment and how the ATM industry is delivering on its environmental commitments.

The Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) argues that the industry is showing leadership in meeting its part of the climate challenge. We feature a number of case studies that highlight the steps that the ATM industry is taking to reduce emissions.

ACI and CANSO have published Managing the Impacts of Aviation Noise, which describes methods for mitigating noise. NATS examines how ANSPs can use this new publication to tackle the noise challenge in collaboration with industry partners.

We talk to the President of COCESNA, who says that excellent training and the latest technology makes collaboration a lot easier. We look at how the ground-based augmentation system is resulting in precision landings and its impact on traditional processes. DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung describes iCAS, a project to create a common air traffic services system.

We explore how to ensure continuous surveillance when an aircraft crosses flight information region (FIR) boundaries.

Teri Bristol explains FAA’s proactive safety efforts through collecting safety data; analysing it to find potential hazards; and then fixing these problems.

Airways New Zealand shares its experience of how performance-based navigation (PBN) at Queenstown has helped it cater for growing traffic in challenging terrain.

We also shine a spotlight on Egyptian ANSP, NANSC, and its work to be the benchmark for Arabian ATM through modernising systems and airspace.
