ICAO is going to hold the PBN Workshop for Air Traffic Controllers at the ICAO Asia and Pacific Regional Sub Office, Beijing, China on 13-15 June 2017. The significance of ATC training on PBN has been well perceived for a long time recognizing air traffic controllers are one of the key enablers of PBN implementation. In other words, if air traffic controllers are confident of the benefits of PBN procedures they are using, the implementation of PBN will be facilitated, thus safety, efficiency and capacity of airspace will be improved.
The objectives of the PBN Workshop for Air Traffic Controllers is
to improve understanding on PBN and PBN procedures for air traffic controllers;
to facilitate application of PBN procedures by air traffic controllers;
to improve efficiency and capacity of airspace and safety of operations through PBN application ; and
to facilitate the implementation of ICAO Resolution A37-11.
The target audience of this workshop is regulators, air navigation service providers (ANSPs), instructors, operational air traffic controllers, and experts related to air traffic controller training.
The workshop will be divided into three sessions tentatively. The main contents are:
DAY 1 - PBN Overview
DAY 2 - ATC Considerations
