ALLCLEAR? The path to clear communications

Air Ground Communication breakdown has been a causal factor in a number of serious accidents; and is a significant factor in many near-misses. The statistics speak for themselves ...

  • There are two Runway Incursions reported everyday somewhere in Europe.
    Communication problems are the most common cause of Runway Incursions.
  • There are an estimated 10 Level Busts per day in Europe. 1 in 10 Level Busts results in a loss of separation <1nm.
    Communication problems are the most common cause of Level Busts.

The AGC initiative has the support of many industry associations and organisations:

  • IFATCA - International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers' Associations
  • FSF - Flight Safety Foundation
  • ECA - European Cockpit Association
  • ERA - European Regions Airline Association
  • IATA - International Air Transport Association
