Here our people share their insights, views and expertise on the world of Air Traffic Management. We cover a broad range of topics from discussing technology and practices today to sharing visions of a potential tomorrow.
Brian Ringrose, an air traffic controller at Swanwick centre looking after airspace around Gatwick, talks about his experience with airspace infringements for this week’s Infringement Series story…
I’ve recently had the pleasure of working with NATS on a research programme aimed at discovering people’s attitudes to airspace modernisation and aviation in general. How do you design a robust survey to find out people’s views on a topic as complex and technical as aviation?

At the end of March, a revolution will begin in the skies over the North Atlantic, as for the first time in the history of air travel, earth orbiting satellites will be used to monitor and manage flights in near real-time.
As the UK becomes the largest user of F35 jets outside of the US, how does this modern fighter aircraft, capable of flying at 1.6 times the speed of sound, train in some of the world’s busiest and most complex airspace?
The idea that a digital tower can mean only that you look to replicate exactly what a controller can already see – the application we see most of around the world – is forcing constraints on the technology that don’t need to exist. This technology is revolutionary, so why strive to only recreate what we already have?
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is expecting 7.8 billion passengers to travel in 2036, nearly double the number in 2017. The biggest spike comes from the Asia Pacific region, which saw the highest air traffic growth of 9.6% last year, underscoring the tremendous growth of economies there.
In the run up to Christmas Eve, Santa will be conducting a number of test flights in order to put a brand new sleigh through its paces at a number of locations all around the world and we need your help.
Advancing aviation, keeping the skies safe is what we strive to do every day. Not just in our own airspace, but across the world. This week, a team from NATS will be presenting at the Global ATM Safety Conference to share some of the work that we have been doing on a Standard of Excellence in Safety Management Systems (SoE in SMS) measurement tool.
