European ATM Master Plan - implementation plan - level 3

The ATM Master Plan features three levels available on the European ATM portal. The Level 3, "Implementation view", contains the Implementation Plan and the Implementation Report.

The Implementation Plan brings together the framework for the commonly agreed actions that ECAC+ Stakeholders should take in the context of the implementation of SESAR. In this respect, it addresses:

  • V3 validated SESAR Solutions,
  • CP1 ATM Functionalities (AFs), based on Commission IR (EU) 2021/116 on Common Project One,
  • SESAR Baseline elements, validated or under deployment at the beginning of the SESAR Deployment phase,
  • SES and ICAO requirements.

Updated yearly, the Plan covers a short to medium-term horizon of around 5 years ahead. It is based on the ATM MP L1 and L2, the SESAR Deployment Programme (SDP), the Network Strategy Plan (NSP), and the SES Interoperability Regulations. In turn, the MPL3 Implementation Plan feeds the LSSIP+ monitoring mechanism as well as the reporting process through the yearly elaboration of the MPL3 Implementation Report.

The MPL3 Plan 2023 edition mirrors the content of the SESAR Deployment Programme (SDP) edition 2022 for what concerns the IR (EU) 2021/116 on the Common Project 1 (CP1). It also features the following changes in the Implementation Objectives:

  • 2 Implementation Objectives changed in status, from Initial to Active (Local),
  • 2 Implementation Objectives changed in status, from Active to Achieved. They are both linked to the CP1 Regulation.

he EUROCONTROL Provisional Council endorsed the 2023 Edition of the European ATM Master Plan Level 3 (MPL3) Implementation Plan in August 2023.

Technical annex

The Technical Annex consolidates the individual Engineering Views of each Implementation Objective included in the European ATM Master Plan Level 3 Implementation Plan 2023.

The 2 Implementation Objectives that were converted from Initial to Active (Local) are:

  • AOP21 – Wake Turbulence Separations for Arrivals based on Static Aircraft Characteristics (S-PWS-A),
  • AOP23 – Integrated runway sequence for full traffic optimization on single and multiple runway airports.

The 2 Implementation Objective that have changed status from Active to Achieved are:

  • AOM19.4 – Management of pre-defined airspace configurations;
  • AOM21.1 – Initial free route airspace.
