ATS 3.3 HARMONISATION OF THE AIRSPACE CLASSIFICATION

Pilots experience difficulties to be constantly aware of the type of airspaces crossed while preparing for an approach and looking outside in compliance with the “see and avoid” rule.

One of the critical safety issues regarding class E airspace is the speed of modern aircraft and the ability of the human eye to detect aircraft in a clear futureless sky.


IFATCA Policy is:

MAs shall urge ANSPs to co-ordinate and harmonise with all neighbouring states their national airspace classification, in accordance with ICAO Annex 11 Appendix 4, to permit safe and efficient operating conditions to all airspace users and air traffic controllers. Airspace classification should be appropriate for the traffic operating in the airspace, to avoid over and under classification. As traffic situations change, the classification may have to change accordingly. Local operational controllers should be involved in the airspace classification process.
