Maastricht UAC

The Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC) is an international non-profit air navigation service provider, operated by EUROCONTROL on behalf of four States – Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

MUAC ensures that aircraft flying in the upper airspace (above 24,500 feet or 7.5 km) over
the Benelux and north-west Germany can do so safely and efficiently.

To manage this busy and complex airspace, MUAC is organised on a multinational, cross-border basis. It is a working example of how European cooperation, both at a civil and military level, can result in safety, capacity and efficiency benefits for all.
