In 2004, once every 30 minutes, somewhere in the world an aircraft busted its cleared level. At least once a day these level busts resulted in a loss of separation.
The aim of this module is to increase the awareness of pilots and ATCOs of the fundamental causes of level busts and to suggest means by which they can be prevented. It highlights a number of different issues which have been identified as prime sources of level busts or are relevant for regaining a safe situation. The module includes the following topics:
• Air/Ground Communications
• ATC Procedures
• Aircraft Equipment
• Airspace Design
This training module was developed in conjunction with EUROCONTROL’s Level Bust toolkit
