FAB CE Project Management Service Office


The Austrian, Hungarian and Czech Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) commissioned the ATM consultancy APAC (with Helios as subcontractor) to support the management of the FAB CE initiative, which addressed the legal establishment, implementation and start of operations of a Functional Airspace Block in seven Central European countries: Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The multi-national PSO team provided project management services to the FAB CE initiative. The team provided support for setting up FAB CE as well as for preparing the implementation of the FAB and its operational life. The support included the definition and setup of management systems in compliance with ISO 9001 and SES Regulations.

The team involved had extensive experience in consulting and managing projects for ANSPs, for national supervisory authorities (NSAs) as well as for other organisations involved in air traffic management, such as the European Commission and the military. It had worked extensively on previous assignments for FAB CE, including developing a cost-benefit analysis and a scheme for managing FAB performance, supporting FAB CE in the application for EU funds, managing the coordination with the TEN-T Executive Agency, setting up and implementing program cost controlling and progress reporting. The team consisted of international experts with many years of experience in ATM operations, technology, safety, performance, HR and program management.
