CANSO joins Radio Technical Committee for Aeronautics
Early in December, CANSO became a member of the Radio Technical Committee for Aeronautics (RTCA).
Founded in 1935, RTCA has provided the foundation for many modern technical advances in aviation.
A private, not-for-profit corporation, RTCA works closely with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), industry experts from the US and around the world to develop comprehensive, industry-vetted, and endorsed recommendations on technical performance standards and the operating environment for utilizing standards. These standards can be used as means of compliance with FAA regulations and other aviation regulatory authorities.
RTCA’s historic role in aviation has been to provide the forum and consensus industry voice for government and industry cooperation on concepts of operations for the air traffic control system, along with the standards and guidelines needed for implementing new systems in aircraft.
Carlos Cirillo, Senior Manager, ATM Policy, CANSO, said: “I have had the pleasure and honour to represent, for the first time, CANSO at the RTCA Advisory Board meeting.
“At the RTCA Advisory Board, CANSO is not only representing the ATM Industry, but also the whole international aviation industry.
“We will soon be joining RTCA Special Committees in the development of these technical performance standards and the operating environment for utilising standards.
