Implementing Partners

Leader: LFV


This project aims to contribute to the PCP AF-1 Extended AMAN and PBN in high density TMAs, through the development and implementation of short term improvements and the development of a roadmap for long term implementation.
A complete set up of requirements for the design and use of the future terminal airspace, A baseline and a defined long term forecast, Well defined KPIs for the baseline and the future, Implementation of short term measures.
A long term implementation Plan (What, When) with the main purpose to:
o Increase the general efficiency of operations in lower airspace (more efficient route structure, better use of the available space, better planning of movements)
o Specifically increase efficiency by the removal of sub-optimal solutions currently required to ensure safety, e.g. during missed approaches
o Reduce environmental impact
