ADME 2.15 REMOTE AND VIRTUAL TOWER

Technology has created the possibility to provide aerodrome control service from a location other than the aerodrome itself. This new concept is being developed both in SESAR and NEXTGEN and is also studied in other countries such as Australia. This document studies the factors behind the interest in remote towers as well as the potential advantages and areas of concern.

See: Resolution B8 – WP 92 – Gran Canaria 2014

IFATCA Policy is:

Separation standards and procedures for Remote and Virtual Towers shall be developed or adapted and implemented based on a robust safety case and the demonstrated capabilities of the system.


See: Resolution B9 – WP 92 – Gran Canaria 2014

IFATCA Policy is:

Standards, procedures and guidance for Remote and Virtual Towers are required.


See: Resolution B10 – WP 92 – Gran Canaria 2014
