2 2 © EUROCONTROL 2013 – Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC/CFMU) FAM - SUMMARY The CFMU has developed and implemented Flight Activation Monitoring (FAM) – a tool which: Monitors flights that should have departed (monitors ETOT/CTOT) Takes action on these flights through an internal to CFMU update of the Take-off time (internal shift), as to improve the forecast. Suspends them, after a time parameter unless a message, which confirms that the flight is airborne or delayed, has been received in the meantime. Informs the AOs and local ATC of the suspension, enabling them to react.

3 3 © EUROCONTROL 2013 – Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC/CFMU) DEPARTURE MONITORING Flight Activation Monitoring (FAM) increases accuracy. In August 2007: 67% flights are monitored. 18.5% are updated. 533 flights suspended. 286 updated by AO after suspension 108 never updated Ghosts. (139 airborne when suspended)

4 4 © EUROCONTROL 2013 – Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC/CFMU) AOs UPDATE FLIGHT PLAN Within 10 min after reception of FLS: 48% are updated by DLA or CHG. 12% are cancelled (21 flights). 222 flights are updated by AO After suspension

5 5 © EUROCONTROL 2013 – Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC/CFMU) DEPARTURES WHEN SUSPENDED 70% (90 flights) are recorded airborne within -5 min, +10 min. CPR/FSA/DEP late, over-flights, runway change, local conditions. 120 flights departed while being suspended

6 6 © EUROCONTROL 2013 – Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC/CFMU) IMPROVED FLIGHT PLAN ACCURACY FAM leads to improved flight plan data due to a change in flight plan updating behavior: More DLA messages 1.5% overall increase in number of DLA messages 6.5% increase for major monitored airports Improved EOBT accuracy (for non regulated flights) Slight change for early departures 1.2% overall reduction in number of late departures 2.1% reduction in late departures for major monitored airports Less ghost flights due to more CNL messages. Slight increase in number of CNL messages 1% increase in CNL messages for major monitored airports.

7 7 © EUROCONTROL 2013 – Network Manager Operations Centre (NMOC/CFMU) CONCLUSIONS The main adverse effect of FAM are the approximately 100 flights recorded as departing while being suspended; It is due to several reasons including late messages, local problems, incorrect taxi-times etc; The main impact is unnecessary message. The main benefit of FAM is the improvement of the short- term prediction of the ATFCM situation (around 4000 flights are updated although the coverage is still below 70%). It is also a reminder for flight plan update and a way to reduce the impact of ghost flights.
