High Complexity

A High Complexity Terminal Airspace Operating Environment is a control area established at the confluence of aircraft trajectories in the vicinity of one or more major aerodromes, in which approach control service is provided by an ATC operational Unit with an Aggregated Traffic Complexity Score greater or equal to 6 and less than 10 or, if score is not available, with a number of serviced IFR flights greater or equal to 100000 and less than 200000 per year.

Complexity Scores are provided in document PJ20 WP 2.2 "Methodology for the Performance Planning and Master Plan Maintenance", edition 0.13, 22 December 2017. The calculation is based on the Report commissioned by the Performance Review Commission on ┬┐Complexity Metrics for ANSP - Benchmarking Analysis┬┐, prepared by the ACE Working Group on Complexity and dated April 2006.

Important Note: OEs and Sub-OEs related definitions will be updated in the next data set.
