Airspace Design Officer

As our Airspace Design Officer you will develop and manage projects regarding the Belgian airspace based on the Belgian strategic vision, operational analyses and ad hoc studies for short-term issues.

You design, adjust and improve (parts of) the airspace, routes, flight procedures, working methods, etc. with the aim of ensuring the highest possible capacity, efficiency and safety levels.

You manage and evaluate the operational concept that has been outlined by analysing the performance indicators. In cooperation with the end user, you provide for corrective adjustments and improvements of the working method, route structure and coordination (including coordination with other centres) depending on new techniques and evolutions.
