Remarks of CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole, at the IATA Ops Conference 2015

14 April 2015

In his remarks to the IATA Ops Conference in Los Angeles on 14 April 2015, CANSO Director General Jeff Poole, stressed the importance of the two Ps – Performance and Partnership in transforming global air traffic management performance. Poole explained what CANSO means when it talks about transforming global ATM performance. He described what transformation would look like for airlines; for those who manage airspace; and from the point of view of regulators and States.

He said that to achieve transformation we need: clear, shared vision; a performance-based approach to all that we do, with clear deliverables; a passion for implementing new technology and adapting to change; and we need to further strengthen and extend the good partnerships that we have built with ICAO, States and valued industry partners such as IATA.

Poole then gave examples of several key issues on which CANSO is working closely with IATA and industry partners and States: ensuring a performance-based approach to air navigation equipage for aircraft; developing the way in which air navigation services are provided; partnering to resolve key challenges, particularly recent cooperation of aircraft tracking and the sharing of information in conflict zones; and how to incorporate remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) seamlessly, efficiently and safely, into the aviation system.
