Full theatre programme DAY THREE - 10 March

09:45 – 10:45: Panel discussion: Safe operation of VTOL and UAS in urban environment

Coordinated by: Yago Grela & Anna von Groote, EUROCAE​


In this session, we will address Advanced/Innovative Air Mobility (A/IAM): a new air transportation system made possible by innovative technologies applied to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft, Vertiports and traffic management systems. We will discuss how the integration in the urban environment is making operation safe through airspace U-Space/UTM.​

11:00 – 12:00: AF6 Initial Trajectory Information Sharing ​

Coordinated by: Cliff van Craen, SDM​


AF6 Initial Trajectory Sharing is mandated in the EU CP1 Regulation, that requires the airspace users, ANSPs and NM to downlink and process the ADS-C/EPP data as part of ATS B2, and it can be considered as the first implementation step in Europe to move towards Trajectory Based Operations (TBO). This session will explain the EU Regulatory framework and the deployment approach proposed to the stakeholders through the SDP, it will provide a vision of future ATS B2 applications currently under R&D, it will also detail the work being done under the Operational Excellence Programme to support a harmonised implementation of an ADS-C Common Service, and finally, will show the operational use of EPP and its operational benefits at MUAC airspace, where ADS-C/EPP became operational in May 2022.​

12:15 – 13:00: Can legislation and standardisation support aviation becoming more cyber resilient?

Led by: Hannes Alparslan (EDA) ​


This session shall give an overview of the current state regarding cybersecurity legislation and standardisation for aviation. We want to discuss the benefits, potential drawbacks and the impact these developments have on the affected organisations. In addition, we want to identify potential gaps, how we could detect them and how cybersecurity research could contribute to better results.​

13:15 – 14:00: Remote Towers: Benefits and Challenges ​

Coordinated by: Yago Grela & Anna von Groote, EUROCAE ​


The panel will bring together the perspectives of the regulator (EASA), a supplier (Frequentis) and an ANSP (HungaroControl) in remote tower implementations, highlighting the benefits available and some of the challenges encountered in delivering a remote tower service.​
