EUROCONTROL launches environmental awareness e-learning

EUROCONTROL (the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation) has launched an e-learning programme to help educate air traffic staff and the general public about the impact of aviation on the environment.

The Aviation and The Environment Programme, developed by Bourne Training, has been released to air traffic control staff across Europe.

Mr Bo Redeborn, director ATM strategies of EUROCONTROL, said: "Environmental issues such as noise and emissions are of increasing global concern. Air traffic management does not have the solution but we do have a role to play in mitigating the environmental impacts of aviation.

"The Environmental Awareness e-Learning programme is designed to give all operational staff a good understanding of general issues associated with environment and aviation, as well as indications of what actions they can take in their daily work to help mitigate the impact of aviation on the environment."

Mike Ditchburn, managing director, Bourne Training commented, "Having won a pan-European tender to develop the programme, we are delighted with the outcome in what is a key objective for EUROCONTROL, given the likely increase in European air traffic and the associated environmental impact.

"The important aspect now is to monitor learners through the programme to identify its impact on air traffic operations."
