42ND ANNUAL CONFERENCE, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 17-21 March 2003
WP No. 89
Review of the IFATCA Vision Document
Presented by SC1
1.1 The Vision Document was drafted in 1997 by several members of IFATCA and not through the Standing Committees.
1.2 This year SC1 and SC4 were asked to review the Vision Document. This paper reports on the review conducted by SC1.
2.1 SC1 looked at only the technical aspects of the document and found that although the content was good, there were points which required updating as IFATCA policy had been reviewed and the Vision Document does not truly reflect the current Federations position on various issues.
2.2 There are numerous issues that should be added, such as ADS-B, ASAS, Safety Management, and Privatisation.
2.3 To amend the document would be impracticable and would result in a document of mismatched elements. It would be preferred that the document be brought up to date as a new publication.
3.1 SC1 concluded that an amendment was not the correct way to proceed and that a new Vision Document should be created.
3.2 SC1 is of the opinion that as the document was created through the office of EVP Technical, that the new Vision Document should be produced in a similar way.
It is recommended that:
4.1 A group of individuals, external to the existing standing committees, be convened to produce a new Vision Document.
4.2 This paper is accepted as Information material.
