Air traffic management: organisation and use of airspace in the Single European Sky
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE REGULATION?
Creation of the Single European Sky
This seeks to:
Network management and design
To support initiatives both on a national level and on the level of functional airspace blocks, air traffic management network functions will allow optimal use of airspace and ensure that airspace users can operate preferred trajectories, while permitting maximum access to airspace and air navigation services.
Flexible use of airspace
Coordination will be increased between the civilian and military authorities, in particular for the allocation and efficient use of airspace for military purposes, including the criteria and principles which should govern allocation and use, and in particular access for civilian flights.
