New regulations for the Air Traffic Management 3000 Series go live
The introduction of the new Air Traffic Management (ATM) 3000 Series regulations have gone live 04 February 2015.
The Military Aviation Authority (MAA) has published its new Air Traffic Managements (ATM) 3000 Series Regulations and associated Manuals under NAA 15/04. The publication of these regulations marks the end of a 18 month review by an MAA Multi-Disciplinary Team formed from staff across areas of the MAA as well as members from the Royal Air Force (RAF) and Royal Navy (RN) air traffic control and air surveillance and control systems force commands.
The ATM 3000 Review sought to ensure that the material contained within the various ATM 3000 Regulatory Articles (RA) and associated manuals is coherent, clear, concise and reflects the operational reality within the ATM arena today. Much of the information contained within the previous ATM RAs and associated manuals was either non-regulatory in nature, duplicated elsewhere in other Military Regulatory Publications (MRP) or in national/international documents (eg the Aeronautical Information Publications, NATO STANAGS or Civil Aviation Publications); this duplicated information has been removed and will now only be available in its source document as highlighted in the Military Manual of Air Traffic Management (MMATM).
