On how planes are routed over the Atlantic Ocean

 

Some of my friends, family and colleagues ask me why a plane can be lost over the ocean without knowing its last position, as the Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight disaster. Looking for documentation, I’ve ran across with this great video by NATS, the British Air Navigation Service Provider company, that shows how the commercial flights are routed over the Atlantic Ocean without radar, one of the main problems that explains, to the date, how we do not know an aircraft position in real time over the ocean.

This video is very illustrative about how a flight is managed in a no radar environment scenario based in the Shanwick Oceanic Control Area (OCA) and neighborhood areas, tactical route planning, what systems support the process, air space capacity optimization, safety procedures, risks management, emergency what-if scenarios, ATC/ANSPs coordination, pilot/ATC communication, etc.

A rough guide to A-CDM

At aeriaA we are trying to address the A-CDM concept from several points of view, interviews at Meet the Expert’s Airtalks interviews (see the Airtalk with the authors of the TITAN Project book, and with Juergen Weder – Neuropie’s CEO), with the free book download of books (www.aeriaa.com/books/titan-going-beyond-a-cdm/), or assisting to interesting events as the Data Science Workshop, etc. So, last week I had the opportunity of reading the first article of Kris de Bolle’s (thanks Kris) new series about A-CDM at the New Airport Insider website. This is the link to the article.
