Solution #37 — Extended Flight Plan

The extended flight plan is an extension of the ICAO 2012 FPL. New information encompasses:
- The 4D trajectory as calculated by the FOC flight planning system in support to the generation of the operational flight plan. The 4D trajectory information in not limited to 4D points. It contains additional elements for each point of the trajectory such at speeds, and aircraft mass;
- Flight specific performance data: the climbing and descending capabilities of the aircraft specific to the flight.
Short term use cases for EFPL are:
- Use extended flight plan information to improve the process of validation of flight plans by the Network Manager, in particular by reducing the number of flight plan rejections resulting from the low resolution of the ICAO 2012 flight plan;
- Use extended flight plan information to improve traffic predictions for traffic flow/complexity management;
- Use extended flight plan information to improve ATC processes (traffic prediction, detection/resolution of conflicts, AMAN operations).
