ASBU Implementation Training (online)

Methodology and Best Practices for ASBU Implementation

Comprehensive and Integrated Training

A quality service from CANSO in association with MITRE

Course Overview

The Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP), agreed by States at the 38th Assembly of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), introduced the Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBU) strategic framework for future air navigation technology and procedure improvements. The ASBU framework is the result of comprehensive consultations with a wide range of aviation stakeholders, and it provides a harmonised and flexible approach for implementing operational improvements to the global aviation system.

The five-day training course provides attendees with a thorough understanding of effective implementation strategies that ensure expedient and cost-effective results.

  • Establishing decision points in an implementation schedule to monitor progress
