Functional Airspace Block Central Europe - Implementation Plan

Programme:

The project contributes to the implementation of the performance targets of the Single European Sky II legislation in the region of the Functional Airspace Block Central Europe (FAB CE), in particular the areas of safety, capacity, flight efficiency, environment, mission and cost effectiveness.

 

Building on a previous feasibility study, the scope of the project is to deliver the implementation plan for the establishment of a distributed service provision model in the upper and lower airspace of the 7 countries involved: the 5 beneficiaries plus Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Implementation will follow after the end of the project.

 

The overall objective of the FAB CE initiative is to ensure a harmonised, effective and efficient technical Air Traffic Management environment in the region by reduction of investment costs, effort and risks for the Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs).

 

It provides improved interoperability between systems and quality of service. The target is to reach, by 2015, uniformity in: Air Traffic Management (ATM), Communication Navigation Surveillance (CNS) and the associated Aeronautical Information Service (AIS), Meteorological Service (MET) and Search and Rescue (SAR) interfaces.
