Special Issue Information
The control and management of air traffic and airspace is a cornerstone for air transportation. It aims to ensure the regular, safe and efficient movement of aircraft during all phases of operations. We are moving towards a complex and exciting industry that gathers many actors, services, facilities, processes and implications; this is an industry with an incipient need for research into the operational, economic, social and environmental significance of Air Traffic and Airspace Control and Management. In this modern, large-scale and dynamic air transportation system, there is a growing opportunity to develop new ideas, models, methods, optimisation approaches, improved operational procedures, and design enhancements to support air traffic and airspace management functions, such as flight planning, trajectory prediction and optimisation, sector capacity/demand balancing, delay reduction, airspace and procedure design, and environmental impact mitigation. Many promising challenges are expected from future developments in air transport, so now is the right time to face them.
This Special Issue aims to bring together innovative contributions that address all tasks related to Air Traffic and Airspace Control and Management. Therefore, we welcome original research articles and reviews related to all fields of the topic, including the construction or testing of a model or framework, the validation of data, market research or surveys, conceptual discussions, reviews of recent research, papers with a practical or empirical focus, and case studies. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Trajectory prediction and management;
- Trajectory optimisation, guidance and control;
- Air traffic control fundamentals;
- Capacity, delay and demand management;
- Resource planning and optimisation;
- Data science, complexity and machine learning in Air Traffic Management (ATM);
- Network and strategic flow optimisation;
- Surveillance and navigation;
- Airspace design;
- Air traffic operations;
- Conflict detection and resolution models;
- Airport planning, management and operations;
- Economics, finance and policy;
- Performance measurement in Air Traffic Management (ATM);
- Safety, resilience and security;
- Environmental impact analysis and mitigation;
- Weather in Air Traffic Management (ATM);
- Sustainability in Air Traffic Management (ATM);
- Human factors;
- UAS/RPAS integration and operation;
- Unmanned aircraft system Traffic Management (UTM);
- The impact of COVID-19 on management and operations.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
