Air Navigation Commission

Air Navigation Commission

The Air Navigation Commission Talks (ANC Talks) were created as a means to allow the Air Navigation Commission (ANC) to engage with industry and aviation stakeholders to discuss different topics related to the future of aviation. The ANC Talks features interviews with distinguished guests that provide an overview of the topic at hand.

ICAO’s ANC considers and recommends Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) for adoption or approval by the ICAO Council.
