Airspace Issue 42 – Q3, 2018
Airspace Issue 42 provides insight into the potential of big data in ATM, and how effective analysis will enable aviation to better handle the huge surge in ATM demand.
This issue also features an interview with Captain Fola Akinkuotu, Managing Director of the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) on the work being done by to improve airspace efficiency across the continent, and a perspective from Javier Vanegas, Director Latin America and Caribbean Affairs, CANSO, on the collaborative efforts that are improving safety and service levels in this region. Christian Onselaere, CEO, ADB SAFEGATE, also shares his view on how global standards and collaboration are the keys to unlocking greater ATM efficiency.
Inside you will also find out about why traffic increases in Europe could mean increases in delays unless governments provide support for ANSPs. In addition, you can read about the impact of climate change on aviation and how understanding new weather patterns will be vital to efficient operations.
Industry insight and analysis includes considering the challenges and benefits of system-wide information management (SWIM), the vital role of training in improving human performance, and how separation standards on approach and departure are being refined but need to be brought into a cohesive structure for airspace capacity to benefit.
