A consortium of SN Brussels Airlines, Belgocontrol, SITA and the Dutch Nationaal Lucht- en Ruimtevaartlaboratorium will conduct Data-Link Taxi Clearance (D-TAXI) trials at Brussels Airport in 2006 on behalf of Eurocontrol.

D-TAXI is the logic next step in data-link services and allows pilots to request -and controllers to give- start-up, push-back and taxi clearances via data link rather than by voice. D-TAXI is expected to reduce ground frequency congestion currently experienced at many major airports. In addition, it is likely to enhance ground safety by reducing the risk of misunderstandings.

“We decided to be a pioneer for D-TAXI because we believe that it is an important project that will bring both safety and efficiency gains for our operations and for the aviation industry,” said Dirk Vrebos, VP Flight Operations of SN Brussels Airlines.

The trial is part of the validation effort of Eurocontrol's CASCADE programme that coordinates the implementation of a second generation of data-link services. Belgocontrol has been selected because it has been pioneering data-link services since the late nineties at Brussels Airport with early implementations of a first generation of date-link services aimed at providing pilots with departure clearances and ATIS .
