A week full of events
This week was marked by many events - where have you been? At the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget? Even if ATM and UTM are side topics there, all important actors were present and UTM shown its importance again. On the other side of the pond, the agenda was dominated by the American Association of Airports Executives Conference and Exhibition, in Boston. Another important meeting was the CANSO Global ATM Summit and AGM, co-hosted with skyguide in Geneva. This was the occasion for CANSO to announce a change of leadership: Simon Hocquard is appointed Director General of the organisation.
UTM people - Save the date
EUROCONTROL's 3rd U-Space demonstrators workshop will take place on the 9th of July. This is a place to discuss demand and supply in the UTM industry. This is co-organized with EASA and the SESAR Joint Undertaking.
Data? DSNA data...
In this age of data, any new source of data is worth noting. DSNA services now offers historical data coming from French ANSP. Datasets cover airlines, airports and traffic flows. Some of the datasets go all the way back to the 70's!
