1 BULATSA 40 Years of Safety in Bulgarias Skies Sofia, 27 February 2009, CNATCC

2 The beginning… The first domestic commercial flight took off on 8 November 1927 from Sofia to Varna and onward to Rousse

3 The years of building the air traffic services in Bulgaria The Aerial Communications Directorate was established by the Council of Ministers on 27 December 1946

4 Air Traffic Services Before 1969 Air Traffic Services was a department of the Bulgarian Civil Aviation State Holding Company On Air Traffic Services was established as a Directorate of the Bulgarian Civil Aviation State Holding Company, with a separate structure and budget

5 Safety started to matter… In the course of the past decades BULATSA provided services from 2 ACCs, 3 APPs and 12 TWRs In the course of the past decades BULATSA provided services from 2 ACCs, 3 APPs and 12 TWRs

6 Key events for the Bulgarian ATM 1991: Membership to ECAC 1992: Commitment to EATCHIP 1993 and 1994: Financial support by EIB for modernisation of the National ATM system 1997: Membership to EUROCONTROL 2004: Membership to CANSO 2007: Bulgarian membership to EU

7 Europe needed to unite… Feasibility Study Concerning ATS Systems in Central and Eastern Europe performed by ICAO in 1992

8 Recommendations Master plan for the Bulgarian Air Traffic Management System Master plan for the Bulgarian Air Traffic Management System Restructuring of ATSA as an autonomous authority Restructuring of ATSA as an autonomous authority Centralisation of area control service Centralisation of area control service Technical capabilities enhancement Technical capabilities enhancement Civil-Military and neighbouring states cooperation, etc. Civil-Military and neighbouring states cooperation, etc.

9 Design Phase started 1996 Design Phase started 1996 Permission for use of the CNATCC building obtained in 2001 Permission for use of the CNATCC building obtained in 2001 BULATSA Headquarters moved to their new offices in 2002 BULATSA Headquarters moved to their new offices in 2002 Sofia ACC and Sofia APP moved to their new common OPS Room in 2004 Sofia ACC and Sofia APP moved to their new common OPS Room in 2004 Common National ATC Centre (CNATCC)

10 The CNATCC Development Commencement of operations of the automated ATM System (SATCAS) in January 2005 Commencement of operations of the automated ATM System (SATCAS) in January 2005 Provision of advanced system functionalities compliant with the ECAC reference levels Provision of advanced system functionalities compliant with the ECAC reference levels Provision of Area Services for Sofia FIR (comprising the former Sofia FIR and Varna FIR) as of February 2008 Provision of Area Services for Sofia FIR (comprising the former Sofia FIR and Varna FIR) as of February 2008 Planned provision of Approach and Tower Services in both Burgas and Varna airports in mid 2009 Planned provision of Approach and Tower Services in both Burgas and Varna airports in mid 2009 Planned complete hardware upgrade at the beginning of 2010 Planned complete hardware upgrade at the beginning of 2010

11 SATCAS System 28 civil and 4 military controller working positions 28 civil and 4 military controller working positions Flight data processing working positions Flight data processing working positions Working positions for AMC, FMP, FIC, supervisor, etc. Working positions for AMC, FMP, FIC, supervisor, etc. Test and development section Test and development section Full replica simulator Full replica simulator

12 SATCAS System (2) Identical equipment at the executive and planning working positions Identical equipment at the executive and planning working positions Redundant configuration in the major subsystems Redundant configuration in the major subsystems Triple backup of the safety critical subsystems Triple backup of the safety critical subsystems Possibility for 50% extension in terms of working positions Possibility for 50% extension in terms of working positions Capacity sufficient to meet the projected traffic demand by 2020 Capacity sufficient to meet the projected traffic demand by 2020

13 The new ATM System is considered presently the most advanced system in Europe, in terms of functional capabilities, performance, reliability and safety

14 Danube FAB -a close look Danube FAB - a close look

15 Danube FAB – a project of Bulgaria and Romania Common project between the two service providers in Bulgaria (BULATSA) and Romania (ROMATSA) Common project between the two service providers in Bulgaria (BULATSA) and Romania (ROMATSA) Full endorsement from the two governments Full endorsement from the two governments Implementation of the SES regulations related to the establishment of Functional Airspace Blocks (FABs) for the airspace of Bulgaria and Romania Implementation of the SES regulations related to the establishment of Functional Airspace Blocks (FABs) for the airspace of Bulgaria and Romania

16 Implementation Schedule Negotiations on legal, regulatory & financial issues Study Phase Stage 1 & 2 FAB Concept solutions identified Business case & CBA Validated FAB Phase 2 Preliminary Design Detailed Implementation plan Legal & financial issues identified Interfaces issues with adjacent states/ initiatives identified Phase 3 Detailed Design & Pre- implementation Airspace designed Interoperability Mechanism agreed Social issues solved Phase 4 FAB Implementation (step-by-step) Commitment to proceed (political level & Service Providers) Implementation Function (PMO) is established Legal work and legislations completed Implementation starts & closure of PMO is initiated Common Entity is established & staffed

17 BULATSA strategic goals Recognition of BULATSA as a competitive organisation, providing safe and high-quality ANS Recognition of BULATSA as a competitive organisation, providing safe and high-quality ANS Key role in ANS provision in South-Eastern Europe Key role in ANS provision in South-Eastern Europe Improvement of performance indicators related to safety, efficiency and effectiveness of ANS Improvement of performance indicators related to safety, efficiency and effectiveness of ANS
