Víctor M. Aguado was Director General of EUROCONTROL from January 2001 to December 2007.
A major focus during his mandate was EUROCONTROL’s contribution to the European Air Traffic Management system. Between 2003 and 2005, European ATM recorded its best ever annual performances with flights at an all-time high and delays at an all time low. Under his leadership, the Organisation increased its membership to 37 and strengthened and developed its relationship with the European institutions, with the accession of the European Community as member of the Organisation, and through its key role in supporting the development of the Single European Sky. He was instrumental in launching the SESAR programme (Single European Sky ATM Research) and in ensuring that EUROCONTROL became a founding member of the future SESAR Joint Undertaking.
