SES Wise Persons Group report delivered

The Single European Sky Wise Persons Group presented their report to EC Commissioner Violeta Bulc on 15 April. The group was established by the European Commission to produce recommendations on the direction European ATM should take in the years ahead and to meet the many challenges. 

The short report contains ten recommendations and can be accessed here.

Eamonn Brennan, Director General, Eurocontrol, stated that “For Eurocontrol, the vision is positive with a significantly enlarged role envisaged for the NM (Network Manager). This marks a change from previous perceptions and reports. The EC will likely develop proposals based on this report for a SES3, which will be considered by the new Commission. It is a very good starting point for us in Eurocontrol and we will have to look at how we are organised and resourced also. This occupied a lot of my time over the past months, as we had many hearings, etc. The report also contains ambitious timelines. The EC together with the Finnish Presidency of the EU Council of Ministers will hold a conference in Brussels on 12 September 2019 to start the ball rolling and get feedback." Brennan continued: “I wish to thank personally all the technical services who supported our work here, the PC President, Raúl, who was an active member and also Volker of ATCEUC and all other group members who contributed to the report. It is a good starting point for Europe going forward.”
