Join our colleagues from the Maastricht UAC at the International Aviation Days Amsterdam. The event will kick off with the International Aviation Career Fair (IACF) - a yearly job, internship and education market for aviation students and professionals, on 9 December and will continue with the Aviation Knowledge and Career Day (AKCD) on 10 December.
Is there a systematic way of identifying ATM security threats and mitigating them? How to apply the current ICAO and European regulations?
EUROCONTROL has extended its portfolio of ATM security courses with the aim of raising ATM security awareness, describing systematic approaches to ATM security and creating a basic understanding of the relevant regulatory aspects.
On 17 November, the air traffic control centre in Bordeaux initiated Phase 1 of the implementation of the ‘Electronic Environment ERATO’ project - a major exercise, involving changing the ways of working of all 280 air traffic controllers at the centre.
It has been a success so far. The network has registered relatively few delays and the capacity of Bordeaux’s airspace is already increasing... View details ⇨
EUROCONTROL is offering four traineeship opportunities in the fields of communication, information management, internal audit, and aviation engineering. A traineeship at EUROCONTROL makes for a great first work experience: as an international organisation, we offer you a multicultural and stimulating environment.
SKYbrary, the electronic repository for aviation safety knowledge, has launched an ongoing series of SKYclips, short animations which focus on a single safety topic in aviation. The first topic at hand: stop bars.
During the first EUROCONTROL Hackathon, 32 talented, curious, and open-minded students came together in the spirit of exploration and collaboration. The atmosphere was great, the location unique and the event itself a lot of fun.
The EUROCONTROL Voluntary ATM Incident Reporting (EVAIR) was launched as the first data collection scheme organised on a pan-European level. Its aim is to learn from low-level incidents and thus help to prevent accidents and serious incidents.
On the occasion of EVAIR’s tenth anniversary, we look back into what the Agency has achieved as a result of the scheme in terms of safety improvements.... View details ⇨
For close to 45 years, the EUROCONTROL Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC) has provided safe and efficient cross-border air navigation services to the upper airspace of Belgium, north-west Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. To this day, such large-scale international airspace is still unique in Europe.
After an exhilarating three days of coding at EUROCONTROL’s training Institute of Air Navigation Services (IANS) in Luxembourg, EUROCONTROL’s first-ever Hackathon concluded with team BlueCloud from Italy being crowned the winners. Read our full report on the Hackathon: [ Eurocontrol.int Link ]
EUROCONTROL’s first Hackathon is all about creating the world’s most efficient radar decoding system for ASTERIX. But what is ASTERIX?
In the past, different countries encoded radar data in different languages, making it complicated for air traffic control centres to exchange data. To solve this, EUROCONTROL developed and provided the All Purpose Structured EUROCONTROL Surveillance... View details ⇨

What does a sustainable future look like? It is a question not easily answered.
Aviation today is faced with the great challenge of developing technologies and procedures which will allow the global civil aviation industry to grow without increasing its carbon footprint. Surprisingly, changes have come about not through disruptive tools such as biofuels or all-composite aircraft, but from... View details ⇨
The user driven prioritisation process (UDPP) is one of the key projects of the SESAR 2020 Research and Innovation (R&I) Programme, and aims to provide more flexibility to airspace users to reschedule their flights when facing capacity constraints and congestion. Between 2015 and 2016, nine airspace users took part in a series of UDPP validation exercises. These exercises demonstrated that the... View details ⇨
Today, EUROCONTROL pays tribute to the air traffic controllers of this world – highly trained professionals who ensure, together with pilots and engineers, the safe, orderly and efficient conduct of flights.
