Performance based navigation and a harmonised sky

Issue 3 2011  •  10 June 2011  •  Steve Fulton, Technical Fellow at GE Aviation

Air traffic is expected to nearly double during the next two decades, raising public concern over not only the environmental impact but also how airspace capacity around airports will need to increase.

In addition, industry has its concerns too – in that current ATC systems will not be able to accommodate the projected increase in air traffic.Thankfully, all of the above issues are being addressed by two programmes that are in the process of revamping ATM (or ‘modernising the skies’).
