    • Portuga l FRAL project: Free Route Airspace Lisboa FIR WorkShop Lisboa 28th April 2009 INTRODUCTION Since the creation of NAV Portugal, in 1998, we have been firmly committed with the compromise to continuously improve and optimise the ATS route network. Consequently, a dense route network structure has being created to shorten the flying distance and increasing flight efficiency. Nevertheless, and independently of the route inserted in the flight plan, it is a common practise in Lisbon ACC to offer aircraft operators the shortest route point-to-point without penalising the operational management (ATFCM) of the en-route sectorisation. The day-to-day experience gained in the OPS room has permitted to believe in the potential of Lisbon FIR to eliminate the upper ATS route network, accomplishing with the three main actions points of the Flight Efficiency Plan.

    • Portuga l FRAL project: Free Route Airspace Lisboa FIR WorkShop Lisboa 28th April 2009 ENR 1.3.- FREE ROUTE AIRSPACE GENERAL PROCEDURES 13 new general procedures were identified in Portuguese AIP ENR 1.3 chapter to easily describe the way to use FRAL airspace. Page.- 4

Consequently, both Portuguese FIR’s, nearly 6 million km2 of controlled airspace, will be free-route. SANTA MARIA OCEANIC FIR LISBOA FIR Page.- 6

FIR Lisboa BABOV FIR Madrid RAKOD CCS PORLI PORTA ELVAR Madrid ACC Seville ACC Lisbon ACC ENR 1.3.1.- Free-route procedures are available in Lisbon FIR above FL245. Delegated airspace (ATS) is excluded (BABOV/RAKOD and CCS, outside FRAL area, are transfer coordination points with Madrid ACC). Page.- 7
    • Portuga l FRAL project: Free Route Airspace Lisboa FIR WorkShop Lisboa 28th April 2009 MILITARY ISSUES (I) MADRID FIR/UIR ENR 1.3.11.- AO’s will plan their trajectory inside FRAL disregarding all segregated airspace. In case there is no availability to cross segregated areas, it is expected that the average flight extension to be considered by aircraft operators is approximately 5NM, in exceptional occasions 15NM. However, in most cases radar vectors shall be provided by ATC. LPR60B LISBOA FIR Page.- 8

    • Portuga l FRAL project: Free Route Airspace Lisboa FIR WorkShop Lisboa 28th April 2009 ENR 1.3 FREE ROUTE GENERAL PROCEDURES (UPDATED ITEM). ENR 1.3.2.- Within FRAL airspace users will be able to plan user-preferred trajectories through the used of 5 letters Waypoints Name Code included in the ENR 4.3 of AIP Portugal, the Radio Navigation Aids (ENR 4.1) and LAT/LONG coordinates. Segments between Waypoints will be indicated by means of “DCT” instruction. ENR 1.3.12.- In terms of flight planning, Item 15, changes of speed and level inside FRAL airspace will be referred using an intermediate waypoint according to ENR 1.3.2. NEW….ENR 1.3.14.- In terms of flight planning, Item 15, flight levels (FL’s) within FRAL area will respect the table of cruising levels included in ENR 1.7.5. Page.- 10
    • Portuga l FRAL project: Free Route Airspace Lisboa FIR WorkShop Lisboa 28th April 2009 ENR 1.3 FREE ROUTE GENERAL PROCEDURES (UPDATED ITEM). ENR 1.3.10.- Cross-Border -DCT- NOT Allowed with the exception of the segments mentioned below. Following IFPS procedures, DCT segment which ends in the FIR but starts in another FIR which is not part of the same NAS is NOT permitted. Airspace users will have to plan their trajectory inside FRAL through the use of intermediate waypoints according to ENR 1.3.2. Exceptional Cross border segments Allowed are: RALUS DCT ALAGU RALUS DCT AMSEL BABEX DCT ALAGU BABEX DCT AMSEL BABEX DCT OSLAD VES RALUS RALUS MOSEN BABEX MOSEN NINOS NINOS CCS DELEGATED AIRSPACE DCT ALAGU ALAGU LPF R OSLAD AMSEL OSLAD AMSEL ZMR
    • Portuga l FRAL project: Free Route Airspace Lisboa FIR WorkShop Lisboa 28th April 2009 CONCLUSIONS With the elimination of the route network, above FL245 there will only remain waypoints/navaids, en-route sectors and segregated airspace. Regarding the military airspace it is necessary to recognize the excellent cooperation and close relationship between NAV Portugal and Portuguese Air Force. In relation to the FRAL project it is necessary to be fair and grateful for its interest in the success of the project which will positively affect aircraft operators in the improvement of the airspace utilisation. Great recognition should be granted to EUROCONTROL/CFMU for his effort to accommodate this new concept in an IFPS system mainly based in a fix ATS route scenario. Lessons learned from FRAL project and for those new free route initiatives will bring us the opportunity to better satisfy Aircraft Operator’s . Page.- 12
