Overview: This webinar, one in a series of ATC topics, addresses the operational environment and functioning of the Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). The initial subject focuses on the primary control positions located in the ARTCC. Each position is discussed to identify the responsibility of the control position and the types of control strategies that are employed to safely and efficiently manage and separate aircraft operating in ARTCC airspace.

The next topic addresses the airspace structure within the ARTCC, including the internal sectorization that subdivides the airspace into manageable sizes and configurations. That is followed by a discussion of the way high volumes of aircraft are managed and controlled to create order out of the chaos an unstructured and undisciplined flow of aircraft would generate.

In addition, there will also be media "games" to and videos that will allow the attendee to "experience" the personal stress of ARTCC operations.

Why should you Attend:

For most people, the Air Route Traffic Control Center (ARTCC) is the least known of all air traffic control (ATC) facilities. The ARTCC is primarily focused on providing high altitude aircraft separation services to aircraft during the enroute phase of flight. It also performs all ATC functions in the absence of an Airport Traffic Control Tower or terminal Radar Approach Control. The ARTCC is the heart of the ATC system and if you have a personal or professional need to fully understand the United States Air Traffic Control System and the operational and functional integration of its component elements, an incomplete understanding of the role of the ARTCC can, and often does, undermine the operational value and effectiveness of technological efforts to enhance the systemic performance of the National Airspace System (NAS) by failing to addressing the "real world" conditions and issues that constrain operational capabilities. From a controller’s perspective, too often technical "solutions" and enhancements solve the "easy" part of ATC and often, because of a naïve understanding of ATC procedures end up actually INCREASING controller workload instead of lessening it.

If you are an instrument rated pilot, much of your ATC exposure and experience will involve the ARTCC. Your experience will be more intuitive and less frustrating with an understanding of what the ATC system is trying to accomplish and how works.

If you are simply interested in aviation, an understanding of ATCT operations is fundamental to understanding the aviation system.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • ARTCC control positions
  • Airspace allocations and configurations
  • Facility internal airspace sectorization
  • Enroute traffic flow design
  • Examples of ARTCC operations
  • Media videos and educational "games"

Who Will Benefit:

  • Engineers and other developers of ATC technologies and systems
  • Managers and other aviation strategic planners
  • Government and industry aviation executives
  • Pilots
  • Aviation enthusiasts

Overview: Many people believe that communications, navigation, surveillance, and automation technologies are the elements of the complete ATC system when, in fact, they are simply the enabling technologies that allow the air traffic control function to perform efficiently and safely.

In reality, air traffic control is the process by which many thousands of aircraft are provided separation services as they climb, descend, and cross paths and altitudes as they travel from any one of thousands of departure airports to any one of thousands of destination airports daily. Air traffic controllers in various ATC facilities are responsible for specific airspace volumes and may be providing those ATC separation services to up to 20 - 25 aircraft at any moment in time. Core ATC concepts, procedures, and techniques have evolved to enable human air traffic controllers to safely manage that level of air traffic density and volume.

This particular webinar topic presents the key ATC concepts and procedures relating to those operations occurring between the control jurisdiction of the airport traffic control tower and the enroute ATC airspace, referred to as the Terminal Radar Control facility or TRACON. This topic goes into the various control positions within a TRACON, the airspace allocation to each position, and the role of the air traffic controllers as the streams of departure aircraft and arrival aircraft cross both paths and altitudes. It also focuses on how air traffic controllers organize sequence, merge, and ensure separation for the multiple aircraft approaching an airport to land from multiple directions.

Also discussed are the various types of approaches that are commonly used in ATC. The topic also shows how the basic concepts and procedures have been adapted to accommodate regions where there are multiple major airports in close proximity. The "bottom" line is to try to capture: (1) what a TRACON controller is trying to accomplish, (2) how he/she is doing it, and (3) what the controller is thinking while he/she is doing it. It’s that internalized notion of what it "feels like" to be a controller that is crucial to the understanding of ATC and to the development of new and advanced ATC capabilities.

Why should you Attend:

If you are a technical or management person involved in developing new and/or advanced ATC technologies involving TRACON operations, it is vital that you understand the fundamental ATC operational procedures currently applied in the TRACON airspace and environment. Without such a personal understanding, it is much more difficult to develop the successful and implementable new ideas and/or technologies that will advance TRACON operational efficiency and safety.

If you are a pilot, much of your ATC exposure and experience will involve operating within TRACON airspace. Your experience will be more intuitive and less frustrating with an understanding of what the ATC system is trying to accomplish and how works. If you are simply interested in aviation, an understanding of TRACON operations is fundamental.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • Core TRACON operational concepts
  • Standard and adapted airspace structures
  • Internal airspace sectorization
  • Standard Departure and Arrival ATC procedures
  • Examples of TRACON operations

Who Will Benefit:

  • Engineers and other developers of ATC technologies and systems
  • Managers and other aviation strategic planners
  • Government and industry aviation executives
  • Pilots

Overview: FAA Definition: NextGen is the evolution of the NAS to a more advance state, which makes better use of technology and design to more efficiently meet transportation needs.

Different types of NextGen tools will require airports and other stakeholders to invest capital resources to take full advantage of associated benefits. An example is Terminal Flight Data Manager (TFDM), where the airport and other stakeholders must be able to interface with the system through TFDM workstations for this NextGen project and associated functionality to be fully exploited for information sharing and situational awareness. The costs to purchase the workstations, additional costs for stakeholders for training and operation, costs to maintain the system, rental costs, location costs, and writing internal procedures on how to manage and operate the tool for airport benefit are all concerns. There is a distinct potential for additional Airport Improvement Program (AIP) funding to the airport for the acquisition of components of these NextGen system upgrades, but the other non-eligible costs (e.g., personnel) will also have an effect on individual airports and their bottom line.

Direct impacts to Airlines and indirect impacts to Airports from the implementation of PBN procedures, including RNAV and RNP-type procedures, have the potential to increase operations in addition to providing safer, more predictable, and potentially environmentally friendlier arrivals and departures. These new procedures have the potential to affect the amount of aircraft landing and arriving at an airport. Often, proposed PBN route changes near the airport concentrate aircraft flow over a narrow band of homes or offices in the community, leading to noise complaints. Airport capacity changes directly impact operations and procedures on the airport surface, where the airport may experience specific airport surface capacity issues, creating bottlenecks that have the potential to drive requirements for additional support equipment or personnel.

Changes to equipment require support personnel to operate and maintain these expanded suites of equipment, where airports may not presently be aware of requirements for implementing these upgrades along with their portion of associated costs for these upgrades. The airlines and traveling public carry the bulk of financial obligation through the various fees and taxes for using airports, along with FAA source funding for NextGen projects. As a result, the airport incurs an indirect value and indirect impact from the NextGen enhancement. If the aircraft arrival/departure volume is condensed with greater amounts of traffic in a given period of time, the airport will require more personnel during that time period and potentially reduced staffing if the traffic wanes during other time periods. Increasing the concentration of traffic is probably not what NextGen will do to an airport but a possible result for airline profitability. Another downside is the delay factor. Concentrating traffic in a short amount of time results in capacity problems and delays.

Why should you Attend:

If you are part of the aviation community and do not know what NextGen is or how it will affect you, this instruction is mandatory for you and your company. To the Aviation Community, NextGen is confusing and not well defined. Even Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) personnel and departments express the same confusion. Clarity as to what NextGen is and who is involved is explained in this instruction.

The steps needed to educate, prepare and follow will be presented in this instruction. Next Gen will affect the Airport Operations in safety and efficiency systems/programs. Increased equipment, training and personnel will be required to accommodate the new technology. Is your airport ready for the equipment? Are you participating in the designs and the human interface components of the projects? Has the airport added their needs and requirements to the designs? Have you incorporated the new equipment and procedures into your future budget and maintenance planning?

NextGen will affect how avionics and systems in an aircraft can be used to enhance safety and efficiency by providing better information for highly integrated operations supporting collaborative decision making and improved situational awareness for pilots, air traffic controllers, and other stakeholders. Has your company participated in the designs and concepts of the equipment? Has your company added your needs and requirements associated to aircraft into the NextGen designs? Has your company weighed the benefits of the new equipment to the costs associated with them?

  • What is NextGen
  • Who is impacted by NextGen
  • Types of NextGen tools
  • NextGen Tools implemented now
  • NextGen Tools being designed

Overview: Airport effectiveness is dependent on each airport entity’s participation and effectiveness at the airport. When information is not shared or understood by even one entity, it creates safety and efficiency issues at the airport. Whether you are an Airline, Airport Operations, Airport Manager, Air Traffic Control or any other entity on the airport, you must have a complete understanding of your requirements of the operations at the airport. You must have a good understanding of the needs and requirements of the other entities. Ignorance and misunderstandings compromises safety and decreases the efficiency at the airport.

This program will address the coordination needed between Airlines, Airport Operations and Air Traffic Control in these areas.

  • Safety enhancements - Coordination in reviewing current and future safety tools and procedures at the airport. Coordination of cross instruction between airport entities to improve safety. Understanding the operation in a "whole" instead of viewing and participating from an "airport entity" point of view.
  • Adapting to weather - Coordination of procedures and processes between airport entities during adverse weather conditions. Reviewing needs and requirements of each airport entity. Changing your procedures to accommodate the other airport entity needs.
  • Aircraft volume changes - Coordination between airport entities to accommodate adverse aircraft volume changes. Understanding needs of each airport entity and adapting procedures to assist their operations.
  • Emergencies- Reviewing needs and requirements of the other airport entities. Adapting procedures to accommodate laws and regulations. Understanding the binding requirements of the other airport entities and educating your own workforce in understanding and properly responding to emergency situations.
  • New Technology - Understanding the new technologies installed and planned for by each airport entity. Coordinating and educating the other airport entities on the effects, usage and requirements of the new technologies. Adapting other airport entities requirements and limitations into the new technology. Understanding FAA NextGen effects on the airport.
  • Traffic Flow Efficiency - Coordinating with the other airport entities to review current traffic flows and find ways to increase efficiency and operate as one entity.
  • Airport Maintenance - Identify areas of needs and requirements for maintaining and repairing airport equipment and tools. Cooperating in preplanning of large operations to reduce delays and maintain safety. Identify other entity’s needs and capabilities.
  • Modifications to Procedures and Tools - Coordinate with other airport entities on current procedures and tools to identify efficiency modifications needed to enhance operations and safety.
  • Special Events - Establish a coordination program to accommodate special events such as airshows, emergency exercises, VIP movements and other rarely seen events.
Examples and methods used worldwide will be will demonstrated. The effectiveness and the cooperation between these entities will be reviewed. Questions and answer session will follow the presentation.

Why should you Attend: Airports of all sizes exist for the primary reason of safely transitioning people to destinations across the world. The people, processes, and tools all must work in harmony in order accomplish this task. Little does the public know that this harmony does not exist at all Airports. The "people" or segmented airport entities (Airlines, Airport, and Air Traffic Control) rarely communicate or coordinate to reduce complications in the operation of the airport. The lack of coordination creates confusion, delays, and complications. The lack of coordination with new procedures and tools can create or hamper other operations on the Airport causing delays and safety issues. This instructional session will assist you in creating or enhancing the communications at your Airport between all airport entities. It will assist you in streamlining your operations and reducing delays.

Does your airport encounter any of these problems:
  • Delays due to Snow Removal, De-Ice, Runway Maintenance and other Airport Operational functions
  • Lack of protocol and organization when abnormal situations occur
  • Inconsistent flow of traffic or lacking equitable departure and arrival rates
  • Surprises- Not knowing what Airlines, Air Traffic Control or the Airport Operations has planned or implemented.
  • Not understanding new programs or tools implemented by Airlines, Airport Operations or Air Traffic Control
  • Encountering issues or obstacles in your operations because of new programs and tools implemented by Airlines, Airport Operations or Air Traffic Control.
  • Forced to participate in new processes and procedures but you do not understand the purpose or projected outcomes
  • New procedures creating hazards or safety problems which were not considered by the people whom created the new procedures
  • New procedures creating inefficiencies and delays
  • Security issues are compromised due to lack of understanding on all participants at the airport.
  • Emergency response information - confusion and delays due to lack of knowledge or misunderstandings between all participants at the airport.
If just one of these factors exists at your airport then you need to participate in this presentation. These factors and others will be presented by the lead instructor and then discussed between you and the other participants. The instructional session will be a two way educational presentation. Questions are encouraged.
