In the spirit of taking things easy and being focused and contemplative in these strange times, what better way than to read your way through the lockdown. By being patient and trusting the process, we might come out of it a little wiser!

We'd like to add to your mounting reading list with our own selection of enriching reading material, which includes the Airspace Architecture Study and the Demystifying and Accelerating Artificial Intelligence in ATM. Check out the list and let us know if you have more to add. 

We also have a number of blogs on our site that we recommend and might spark further discussion. Learning from the Amsterdam pushback incident, what the use of FlightAware data means for the whole ATM community and will we see Air traffic Control in Home-office?

We'd love to hear your thoughts on the above. Let's keep the conversations flowing!
