Full Membership

The air traffic management industry is constantly evolving: new technologies are changing the way that the air transport industry operates; there are new regulations and standards at global, regional and national levels; and the business models of air navigation service providers are evolving to respond to all of this.  CANSO is at the centre of this change: monitoring developments; anticipating new trends; influencing ATM elements of new regulations and standards; and advising its members on how to take advantage of and embrace change.

CANSO membership provides opportunities to: shape the future of air traffic management as part of CANSO’s Standing Committees, workgroups and regions; benefit from representation at major aviation forums – including ICAO; provide input to, and share experiences from major next-generation ATM modernisation programmes; access industry knowledge, guidance materials, data, and best practice; and work with other aviation stakeholders to address common challenges.

Full Membership is open to any organisation providing air navigation services, regardless of whether or not they are autonomous of their government.
