The introduction of the Flexible Use of Airspace (FUA) Concept is based on the fundamental principle that airspace is one continuum to be allocated for use on a day-to-day basis to accommodate user requirements.
The FUA Concept will allow the maximum joint use of airspace by appropriate civil/military co-ordination to achieve the required separation between civil and military flights, hence reducing airspace segregation needs.
LARA is a EUROCONTROL software package provided free of charge to stakeholders to support and enhance the airspace management process. It provides real-time exchange of airspace management data between involved actors enabling collaborative decision making and an enhanced situational awareness throughout the airspace management process. The implementation of LARA enables compliance with articles 5.3 and 6.2 of Commission Regulation (EC) No 2150/2005 laying down common rules for the Flexible Use of Airspace (FUA).
