Chongqing implements radar control


On May 10, the Chongqing Air Traffic Management Station high altitude control area implemented the complete use of radar control. The new system improved airspace use rate, expedited flight flows, and improved flight safety rate and flight on-time performance in the Chongqing area. In recent years, the flight flow within the Chongqing control area has continuously increased to about 20 percent yearly. The peak daily flight reaches 598 movements. Chongqing ATM Station implemented radar control for the terminal area under 6,000 meters in 2005. The implementation of high altitude radar control decreased the longitudinal horizontal separation for Chongqing area control to 40 kilometers from 150 kilometers. The use of radar control will help Chongqing in the establishment of a logistics center in Yangtze upriver.
