Air Traffic Management Systems - Functional Airspace Block Europe Central (FABEC)


This Action contributes to the realisation of the FABEC global project by conducting a series of activities necessary for the functional airspace block to comply to the Single European Sky (SES) legislation.


The objective of the Action is to create selected deliverables which allow FABEC Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP) to contribute to the establishment of the Functional Airspace Block in the upper and lower airspace of the countries concerned and to improve air traffic management performance.


Establishing FABEC requires, amongst other things, programme management activities, development of ANSP governance, creation of a FABEC-wide performance management system, development of a FABEC safety case and safety management system, development of a FABEC implementation phase cost benefit analysis, development of FABEC HR harmonised working conditions and development of ANSP institutional arrangements.
