  • The IFATCA ViewIs there a need for common plans and coordination at industry levelFor those that are not familiar with IFATCA:IFATCA is the worldwide Federation of air traffic controllers with more than 50.000 members representing 134 countries. Among its goals are the promotion of safety,efficiency and regularity in International air navigation, and the protection andsafeguarding of the interests of the air traffic control profession.We have celebrate our 50th birthday on 20th October this year!

  • TRNG.2.9. Degraded Mode Operations“Controllers should be given initial and recurrent training in the degraded modeoperations of their equipment.”IFER Training, Chapter 88.2 The exposure of controllers to exercises in flight simulators is considered beneficial. It provides them with an insight into the challenges confronting flight crew, how malfunctions are displayed on aircraft instrumentation and flight deck response procedures.
  • To mention CISM http://www.eurocontrol.int/humanfactors/public/standard_page/CISM.html
  • In theory it is possible to make a difference between crisis vs other events such as anemergency, catastrophe or a conflict – though in practice the defining is not always thateasy. An emergency can lead to a crisis (e.g. a aircraft crash can lead an ATC Providerinto a crisis). - SkyguideOr a crisis can lead to an emergency or a very risky situation (e.g. Ifunmotivated staff were to boycott systems which could stall the entire ATC system for awhole area or region).One of the main differences is the way of management of a crisis vs. catastrophe,emergencies and conflicts.In emergencies, catastrophes etc., SKILLS, EDUCATION, KNOWLEDGE, TRAININGand CHECKLIST are importantIn crisis`` visions, moral and ethical principles, quality and competence and emotionalintelligence are important.
  • IFATCA Annual Conference in Arusha, Tanzania 2008. Presented Crisis Guide.the crisis guide for MA is something which could hit any member associations and therefore IFATCA felt the need to establish this. As some of the examples mentioned in the crisis guide are example which put a lot of stress on the aviation value chain and therefore can be looked as well as an emergency.Do not read this: A crisis is any event or situation that could hinder the ability of an air traffic controlunit to operate effectively, or damage the reputation of an air traffic control unit (orService Provider) with stakeholders, users and the public, all of whose support isessential for successful operations.YESIn today's society our highly connected world seems to be in a state of permanentcrisis – we are witnessing crisis’ in almost every facet of daily life. The InternationalFederation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA) has experienced severalmajor crisis’ develop within Member Associations in recent years, where someseemingly innocent events have turned into crisis situations.In light of a lack of educational and guidance material on the handling of crisis’ withinthe Federation the Executive Board of IFATCA feels the need to provide guidelines toour Member Associations to help in the process of preparing for, and dealing with eventswhich could be categorized as a crisis, or which could evolve into a crisis.A crisis is not easily defined. It is important to accept that there are very different types ofcrisis`` and that the facets of crisis`` depend on many elements which may not necessarilymatch one single definition. Crisis will typically lead to different outcomes, and canproduce the unwanted possibility of harm - but at the same time they can lead to apositive change. Also, we can identify elements of a crisis and change the outcome andnot just simply react to it. Crisis are very often defined as non predictable compared tocatastrophes though crisis`` do have a recurrent element which is not necessarily the casewith a catastrophe. As well crisis has different levels of impact on sub-parts of a system.E.g. an electronic virus (Trojan horse) can seriously affect or destroy only a part of anorganization and not the whole organization. The interactions between different parts ofthe organization in such a case can however lead to another crisis. Subjectivity is as wellan important part in a situation where people or organizations that are unprepared willenter a crisis situation where on the contrary another organization or group of people(prepared to detect what a crisis is) will continue to work as normal with the samesituation.
  • The International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA) haswitnessed several major crisis affecting its Member Associations in recent years. Someseemingly innocent and or harmless events have turned into crisis situations due to anapparent lack of education and capability to analyze the possible impact of events on thepart of our membership.YESCrisis situations can develop fromemployment-related issues, health and security conditions in the workplace, the growingtrend of criminalization and the involvement of air traffic controllers in serious accidentsand or incidents.7 reasons why it is important to have an understanding of a crisis:1. We can better cope with the challenges a crisis will provoke2. We are motivated to determine the chances of a crisis occurring3. We are able to increase the crisis watch, improve our crisis prevention and betterprepare for an eventual crisis.We are able to learn and make informed conclusions in the future5. We are acquiring a solid basis for leadership during, after and before the crisis6. We develop leadership profile7. We start to understand leadership processes
  • Can you prepare for a crises (from IFATCA Crises guide)YES!science recommends 7 steps to prepare and preventcrisis situations:First step: Higher values and considerations, general interest and main tasks. The aimis to define a solid basis and a framework to establish a port-folio.There is a need to clearly identify what are main aspects of "business continuitymanagement.`` This can be outlined in a vision or mission document or code of conduct.This forms the basic principle of an organization. There is a need to define these values inorder that they do not get lost in a crisis situation. These binding values could be bestdescribed as: Risk has a multitude of dimensions, some of which involve ethicalconsiderations. A number of different views can thus be pertinent and legitimate, andconfronting this variety of standpoints is part of risk management.example ATC: As Member Association we will never go on strike aswe have not the right to do this.Second step: identify the risk and situation which could lead to a crisis. The aim is toidentify potential crisis situations.It is important that those risks and situations which could lead to a crisis for anorganization or a company are listed in a brainstorming session by the leaders andmanagement of such an organization or company. As a second step in this work it isimportant to assess the risk in an objective and subjective manner.example ATC: One of our members is being jailed after an incidentor suspended without pay.3. Third step: formal risk assessment with the aim to gather crisis situation or differentcrisis types into a grouping.The importance of this step is that the grouping of a crisis can lead to better responsepreparation. Such a matrix will typically have 4 categoriesa) high probability of occurring with less important consequencesb) high probability of occurring with potential important consequencesc) low probability of occurring with less important consequencesd) low probability of occurring with potential important consequencesThe classification discussion will then as well lead to a potential cost benefit analysis ofinvestment into some of the risk mitigation. (acceptable risk).example ATC: MA goes on strike – and the association/union wasdissolved.

(acceptable risk).example ATC: MA goes on strike – and the association/union wasdissolved.
  • Can you prepare for a crisesYES!Forth step: the grouping will now be associated to real potential damaging risks whichcould lead to crisis assessed and grouped in a crisis portfolio.It is important to focus in this step on priorities in the group of risk which can lead tocrisis. The portfolio will then typically focus on risk watch and crisis watching of thisgroup of risk. The seriousness of a potential crisis has as well to be measured against themain values (step 1) and goals. The aim is to address those crisis groups with the mostdestructing potential first in a crisis portfolio.example ATC: all crisis related to collective bargaining are groupedunder one `heading``5. Fifth step: how do you prepare yourself to cope with the chosen crisis portfolio? Howfar is your crisis preparedness?Simply ask the question: `` how do we prepare for the crisis``. What are theorganizational and logistical steps to be taken?
  • Can you prepare for a crisesYES!6. Step six: where are we compared with where we should be with the readiness of ourpreparedness.example ATC: have create an emergency phone list with all themembers of the Board. Do we have selected a spokesperson from the Board?7. Step seven: develop crisis scenarios and add new and future potential ideas into thisthinking.By imagining crisis scenarios you create a good exercise for what could happen and howit can happen. The "by-product" of such simulation or scenario description is that all theactors involved will become more alert on potential crisis development.example ATC: Scenario of the president of the association beingaccused of criminal charges – by giving an interview. How will we react to this?mention that IFATCA has developed a Crisis Guide for our MAs as this demonstrates that we agree that with the general question about contingency planning;
  • This guide is intendedto assist IFATCA Member Associations in the development of a “customized” actionplan that will prepare you for a wide range of emergencies that could occur at any time.Quality of Service:- Allegations of inappropriate, inadequate or sub-standard operational procedures leveledagainst an air traffic control unit or Service Provider - Serious operational error(s), accidents or incidents.- Health/safety and/or workplace violations exposing staff to potential harm.Management Issues:- Sensitive political issues, legislative or regulatory concerns- Governmental inquiries or allegations.- Employee protests, unrest and/or industrial action- Acute staff shortages impacting on levels of service.- Other high-profile events.

  • Why 500 NM for Pinatubo = 250 NM for Eyjafjalla?(Kilauea, Hawaii28 years continuous eruption) 62
  • What will make the next eruption different ?1) Good preparation – Procedures / contingency – Crisis cell in place – Knowledge to handle the risk – Rehearse2) OPS oriented based on Safety Risk Assessment – Network management3) Political implications – Ability to address unforeseen situation – To react quickly but safely to unlock/manage4) Communication 63
  • What if an eruption starts tomorrow? Contingency or crisis ?
  • Summary and conclusions -• ICAO defines provisions for ERP mainly in Annex 6 , 11, 14 and in the SMS Manual and the Airport Services Manual;• Similarly for Contingency planning in Annex 2, 11, 17 and PANS-ATM• Planning must be coordinated between all stakeholders• EASA tools available (regulations, SIBs, Emergency Airworthiness Directives)• EACCC
