The latest Performance Review Report (PRR) of EUROCONTROL’s Performance Review Commission (PRC) was published in mid-June, giving an independent assessment of European Air Traffic Management’s (ATM) performance in 2013, it was reported from Brussels.
Safety levels are still high in Europe. There have been no fatal air navigation services (ANS)-related accidents since 2010 and the number of reported ANSrelated serious incidents in 2013 was the lowest seen in the past eleven years. “Despite this positive trend, we still need to improve the level of occurrence reporting and the assessment of incidents. The deployment of automatic safety data reporting could further improve trend analysis for the identification of safety risks,” observed Ralph Riedle, PRC Chairman.
