Services to Aviation


In July 2018 the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Met Office organised a space weather tabletop exercise/workshop hosted by NATS Prestwick. The day was focused around what NATS perceived to be their biggest risk; North Atlantic traffic and communications disruptions. The exercise was attended by Air Navigation Service Providers and airlines, alongside the CAA and Met Office. This presentation will cover the space weather scenario used, the key topics of discussion and the key findings.
