First up, there's news from Greece that the Hellenic Aviation Service Provider (HASP) has officially rejoined the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO). HASP’s Governor, Mr. Georgios I. Dritsakos, said, 'Rejoining CANSO is a strategic decision for HASP as we aim to foster collaboration, innovation, and excellence in our air navigation services.'

Next, we're hearing about the launch of a new air navigation service in Ireland. AirNav Ireland provides ATC services at Dublin, Cork, and Shannon airports, as well as the 455,0000 square kilometres of air space. And, its controllers at the North Atlantic en route centre in Shannon handle over 90% of aircraft that operate between North America and Europe.


From SESAR JU, there's news of a new project. TRUSTY aims to implement AI in remote digital towers, which will enable the provision of airport air traffic services from virtually anywhere. This promises significant enhancements in operational efficiency and safety.


And last but not least, we're hearing about a competition for students to advance air mobility. ICAO launched the Global Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Academic Paper Competition ahead of the AAM 2024 Symposium next year. The competition seeks to encourage students to explore the technology, safety, regulations, urban planning, legal considerations, and sustainability involved in advanced air mobility. It is open to Master’s and PhD students, as well as final-year Bachelor’s students.
