Launch of UK ATM Vocabulary (CAP 1430)

The new UK ATM Vocabulary (CAP 1430) provides the authoritative reference for all terms and abbreviations used within specific CAA Civil Aviation Publications related to ATM.

Primarily, these terms and abbreviations have been sourced from European Commission Implementing Regulations, particularly Reg (EU)923/2012 Standardised European Rules of the Air. Where terms and abbreviations are not defined within Commission Implementing Regulations, additional material has been sourced from: Annexes to the Convention on International Civil Aviation and, where appropriate, to ICAO documents such as PANS-ATM (Doc 4444); the UK Air Navigation Order and supporting UK policy documentation; and the EUROCONTROL Airspace Management Handbook.
