The first three days of the week-long Summer School Programme start with an overview of the current Air Traffic Management (ATM) situation and its main actors in a challenging context. Other topics covered are the European Union’s Performance Scheme, with its binding performance targets, and evolving traffic forecasts.
 
In addition to technical subjects, a pilot in active service with an airline will describe aviation’s constraints from an airline's point of view.
 
The last two days of the programme provide the participant with hands-on training on an air traffic controller’s tasks. After raising awareness about the different kinds of airspace used by commercial flights - how it is constructed and managed according to the landing, approach and en-route phases of flight -, the students are presented with traffic handling tools and safety nets used by controllers; they will also take a brief look at possible future tools.
 
This is all then brought together in a unique opportunity for participants to control traffic on high-fidelity simulators in the en-route phase of flight as well as a Tower simulation. Experienced air traffic control instructors will help participants maximise their understanding and appreciation of the thought processes required to handle busy traffic scenarios in modern-day European airspace.
 
This training course provides students with a unique opportunity to learn from the different experts lecturing in this Summer School Programme.
