Single European Sky

Single European Sky is an ambitious bid to reform the architecture of European air traffic control to meet future capacity and safety needs.

Improved air traffic and aircraft positioning and communication technologies, such as GALILEO - which are at the heart of the Single European Sky - offer opportunities for significant improvements in the efficiency and safety of air travel. Visit: European Commission

Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) is the name given to the collaborative project that is intended to completely overhaul the European airspace and its Air Traffic Management (ATM) using those advanced technologies. Visit: SESAR Joint Undertaking
