Eurocontrol have deployed the second phase of Variable Division Flight Level (vDFL) following the successful implementation in eastern airspace managed by Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC). The concept will now cover further into western airspace covering Holland and Northwest Germany.
The deployment of vDFL is the first phase of the introduction of the Single European Sky initiative (SESAR) and is set to improve efficiency of Air Traffic Management through reliable messaging and streamlining of operations across the aviation industry.
As the airways grow busier, messaging providers are supporting a need for greater flexibility for the ATM system. Choosing seamlessly reliable aviation messaging over a robust network, such as Rockwell Collins’ ARINC AviNet is the way forward into the future of commercial and business aviation sectors, improving safety and helping operators to manage spiralling costs.
