“The ATM [air traffic management] industry has made good progress but there is still a long way to go. Both the industry and states can take important measures to further improve safety and transform ATM performance.” That was the position Jeff Poole, director general of the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (Canso), expressed last week as he outlined the organization’s vision to improve aviation safety in Africa, while also achieving seamless regional airspace by explaining the steps necessary to transform ATM performance.

Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (Canso) director general Jeff Poole has laid out proposals to transform air traffic management (ATM) performance in Africa. Speaking at a Canso conference in Abuja, Nigeria, on October 8, Poole highlighted two broad areas of focus in the region: improving runway safety and creating a world-class ATM system that allows aircraft to fly safely across African state borders seamlessly.
European controllers have scrapped plans for a strike on October 10 to protest draft amendments to Single European Sky (SES) regulations that would expedite the restructuring of the continent’s ATC network.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO) have inked an agreement that each believes represents a significant step in enhancing a mutual dialogue focused on runway safety. The agreement also means the realization of a shared aviation safety intelligence model, a computer database designed to improve accident analysis.
Trade organizations representing airports, airlines and air navigation service providers (ANSPs) are working together more closely to influence aviation system improvements in Europe, where the Single European Sky effort continues to draw criticism for moving too slowly. Airports Council International (ACI), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (Canso) plan to introduce a series of collaborative programs with tangible results, or “deliverables,” according to Canso director general Jeff Poole.
Airlines and the organization representing Europe’s air navigation service providers (ANSPs) agree that the continent must modernize and streamline its ATC system. But two decades into the pursuit of a smoothly functioning Single European Sky, “there has not been as much progress” as airlines need to remain strong, said Tony Tyler, director general and CEO of the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (Canso) and the U.S.-based Air Traffic Control Association (Atca), opened the inaugural World ATM Congress in the Spanish capital Madrid on Tuesday.
It’s not the U.S. presidential election, but it’s similarly hard-fought and bitter. In a previous post, we reported on the showdown between ATC Global, the long-established ATC conference run by global media company UBM, and the upstart World ATM Congress, advanced by the Netherlands-based Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (Canso) “in association” with the Air Traffic Control Association (Atca) of the U.S.
The Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (Canso), Airports Council International (ACI) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced in Rome on June 25 that they will soon coordinate efforts aimed at driving aviation system improvements.
The pace of change to air traffic management needs to accelerate, according to a paper released jointly
