Welcome to Issue 28 of HindSight magazine.The theme of this issue is ‘Change’.
Changes in aviation – in organisations, in industry and in society generally – affect us all, and can affect the safety of air traffic management. The pace of change is increasing. Change is necessary to adapt to the changing world, and we need to adapt to these changes as individuals, teams, and organisations.
In this issue, we have articles from the front-line, as well as from safety, legal, leadership, human factors and psychology specialists. All HindSight articles are written for the primary readers of the magazine: air traffic controllers and professional pilots, and are hopefully of interest to all others who support operational work.
"Our current systems, our current ways of working, will not be able to cope with these traffic levels. At the same time, we are seeing new types of traffic – not just remotely piloted but also, for example very high altitude aircraft. So we have no choice but to change," says Eamonn Brennan, Director General of EUROCONTROL, in his foreword to the 28th edition of HindSight.
HindSight is produced for air traffic controllers by the EUROCONTROL Safety Improvement Sub-Group (SISG). Issued twice a year, HindSight aims to help operational air traffic controllers to share in the experiences of other controllers who have been involved in ATM-related safety occurrences.
