A Single Sky for Europe
What is the Single European Sky?
The Single European Sky (SES) initiative of the European Commission (EC) provides a legislative framework to meet future safety, capacity and efficiency needs at a European rather than at a national level.
Due to its extensive expertise and valuable experience in European air traffic management (ATM), the EC has asked EUROCONTROL to provide technical support, to draft regulations and to assist in the overall implementation of Europe’s future ATM system.
What we do for the Single European Sky
Supporting rule-making, standards as well as safety and environmental legislation.
Accommodating civil-military ATM coordination across the full range of EUROCONTROL activities.
Designated by the EC as the Performance Review Body to monitor the SES peformance scheme.
Supporting oversight of key aviation sector elements: safety and network management.
Identifying the gap between what is needed at European level and what can be done at local and regional levels.
