Development of Common ATC Simulation Training Assessment Criteria Based On Future Pan-European Single-Sky Targets
Department of Air Traffic Control
Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences
Institute of Flight Guidance
The primary objective of this project is to develop common assessment criteria
for simulation training
courses within the Air Traffic Controller (ATCo) basic training in order to improve students’
competencies regarding working effectively and in harmony within the integrated Pan-European air traffic
system; improve metrics and scoring tools for the evaluations of students according to future targets of
this system such as efficiency and economics; and provide guidelines and recommended practices for
enhanced ATCo training across the Europe.
The project proposes an innovative approach to measure the performance of ATCo students in radar simulations based on flight cockpit and integrated ATC and flight cockpit simulations. Instructions of ATCo students will be tested in terms of airspace occupancy, service times, aircraft fuel consumption, pilot workload and readability and implementability of ATCo instructions by pilot.
ATCOSIMA brings together 3 highly qualified universities!
In long term, the project outputs are expected to support development of standardized ATC training, increased awareness in safety, efficiency, economics targets of integrated ATM management in Europe, improved employment and mobility opportunities for ATCO candidates, reduction of the job adaption periods, costs and durations of advanced training for ANSP, and enhanced quality of air traffic services and sustained growth of air transportation and connected regional economies in Europe.
