European Route Network Improvement Plan (ERNIP) - Part 1

Airspace Design Methodology Guidelines – General Principles and Technical Specifications for Airspace Design

The European Airspace Design Methodology Guidelines - General Principles and Technical Specification for Airspace Design - represents Part 1 of the European Route Network Improvement Plan package. It contains general principles, detailed technical specifications and methods of application for a common airspace design and change process in Europe.

The guidelines contained in this document have been developed to support the European airspace design process in that overall performance is improved and airspace structures1 are developed in a harmonised manner. The document will be reviewed periodically so it remains valid in light of the progress made and experience gained, and to reflect the actual changes that take place in aviation.

The European Airspace Design Methodology is mainly focused on providing general guidance and technical specifications for airspace designers.

Where necessary, further reference pertaining to airspace design matters is made to appropriate ICAO documentation.
