Staying up to date with key insights, views and expertise in the world of air traffic management will help your business remain relevant. To help keep pace, we'd like to highlight two great blogs covering a mix of operational and technical contents:

  • The first blog is from NATS. A long-lasting blog that's several years old, it contains a mix of topics and is kept regularly updated. 

  • The second is a blog from HungaroControl. They launched the blog in March of this year and contribute a steady stream of great articles to sink your teeth into. 

And while we're on the subject of staying informed, EUROCONTROL's new R&D data archive has launched, and it's going to provide researchers and data scientists access to detailed flight data of 12 million commercial flights.


This will allow them, for the first time, to view huge european datasets that will offer the clearest picture possible of air traffic management and enable the use of artificial intelligence/machine learning applications to analyse a number of decisive impacts. 


Advancements in research and innovation fuel pioneering concepts that improve on-time performance, cost-efficiency and environmental responsibility in the industry. It's great to see this work continuing.
