During the period May 15-17, 2024, the 25th Anniversary meeting of the Coordination Commission on Air Navigation of the states parties to the Agreement on Civil Aviation and Use of Airspace (States Parties to the Agreement) was held in Moscow at the site of the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC). 

The meeting was attended by more than 90 participants from six contracting states of the Agreement, including representatives of: IAC, International Air Transport Association (IATA), Eurasian Economic Commission, International Consultancy and Analysis Agency "Aviation Safety", aviation authorities and air navigation services, Russian industry, educational institutions, airports and air navigation meteorological centers.

IAC Chairman Oleg Storchevoy addressed with d a welcoming speech, noting that the rapid technological changes in modern aviation - satellite systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, process automation - require close attention and professionalism. In this regard, at the CAC meeting, special attention will be paid to improving flight safety, air traffic control, sustainable development of air navigation and the introduction of advanced technologies in new development conditions. “We are confident that sharing ideas and best practices will allow us to move forward and make the skies even safer and more accessible for everyone. I wish you fruitful work and new professional discussions!”

The business program started with awards to organizations that have actively collaborated with CCAN all these years.

Within three days, a constructive discussion took place on a wide range of issues. We exchanged experience in the field of meteorological flight support, discussed cybersecurity issues for the aviation industry, and studied new scientific and methodological approaches to the development of surveillance systems at the airfield. Separately, we focused on considering the issue of using modern technologies to collect weather data from an aircraft and developing a unified concept among the states parties to the Agreement. In addition, the issue of integrating digital platforms for organizing air traffic of unmanned aircraft was considered.

The results of many years of fruitful cooperation in the field of air navigation services for civil aviation flights were summed up and an algorithm for further interaction between the IAC and stakeholders was outlined for the medium term.

For the purpose of practical exchange of experience, an on-site session was organized for specialists in aviation meteorology with visits to Roshydromet facilities. The meeting participants also had the opportunity to visit the IAC aviation accident investigation laboratory.

All representatives noted the high level of organization of the discussion. A number of specific proposals were made in the context of developing cooperation between the IAC and the States Parties to the Agreement in order to implement modern ICAO requirements in civil aviation activities.

The Coordination Commission on Air Navigation of the States Parties to the Agreement was formed 30 years ago - on January 21, 1994. All these years, the CCAN has been an indispensable tool for the development and elaboration of a unified approach in the field of international air navigation and flight safety in the airspace of the States Parties to the Agreement.
