Eurocontrol and other stakeholders from across the aviation industry have agreed on the outline of a plan to address ATC communications safety issues in Europe. These include callsign confusion, undetected simultaneous transmissions, radio interference, use of standard phraseology and prolonged loss of communication. The Brussels, Belgium-based organization said it will focus on causal factors for these issues and establish remedial measures. Said Eurocontrol safety expert Tzvetomir Blajev: “By improving air-ground communications, we will also help improve the productivity of air traffic management.” Authorities expect to implement the action plan early next year.
