Meteorological (MET) support for low level flights (LLF) is very fragmented and inconsistent in Europe, although LLF is the most safety-critical part of aviation. The Action which is based on cooperation between MET service providers in central and southeastern Europe aims to provide LLF users with eGAFOR (electronic General Aviation Forecast), a consolidated and harmonised MET service for flights planned over several countries. The area covered by the Action is Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Hungary, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The new system will increase safety and efficiency in the covered area in the lower air space and has the potential to be extended to more countries.
