About us

International Federation of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Associations (IFATSEA) unites the professional associations of Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEPs) from around the world.

Our Vision

IFATSEA is the authoritative voice on the competence of air traffic safety electronics personnel. Using our strong global network, we actively contribute to the improvement of air traffic safety performance.

 

Working with other ATM stakeholders

IFATSEA is recognised as an observer by ICAO.
Working Together with ICAO, IFATSA was strongly involved to develop the ICAO PANS-TRG Doc 9868
and the Manual on Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel Competency-based Training and Assessment,
published as ICAO Doc 10057.

IFATSEA contributes to the work of the SESAR Joint Undertaking, defining the
future technology platform for the Single European Sky.
IFATSEA is participating to the EASA rulemaking activities related to ATSEPs and their competency.

IFATSEA maintains working relationships with the ATM staff trade union organisations European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF) and International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF). IFATSEA also collaborates with the global federations for other Aviation Professional Staff – IFAIMA , IFALPA, IFATCA and IFISA.
