Helios selected to deliver an upper GCC FIR study

Posted 9 September 2015 · Add Comment

Helios, the UK's management and technology consultants, has won a competitive tender to undertake a study into a flight information region (FIR) for the upper air space of the six Gulf Co-operation Council countries of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Ahmed Al Jallaf, Assistant Director General of Air Navigation Services at the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority, said the selection was made late last month and work on the study – seen as the first step in a GCC Airspace Optimisation Project - will begin early next month. The study is expected to take about a year to complete.
Al Jallaf said the study’s scope covers how a regional FIR can enhance airspace safety and efficiency, improve air traffic capacity and standarise air traffic procedures and operations.
