Emergencies are complex in nature. When one emergency occurs it may trigger other emergencies. The current emergency may in turn have been triggered by another.

This module helps ATCOs to understand the characteristics or circumstances of 15 selected unusual or emergency situations. It provides background information about how these situations may arise and their effect on aircraft and crew. The focus is on urgent and essential actions which ATCOs should take to manage the situation and assist the aircrew.
This Module is developed in support to the ‘ASSIST’ Process. It aims at:
  • Understanding of the nature of occurrences (whether an unusual situation or an emergency) by providing background information about how a variety of occurrence arise and their effect on aircraft and crew.
  • Building on the 15 proposed checklists for emergencies and unusual incidents which form part of the EUROCONTROL work to enhance «controller training in the handling of unusual incidents».
