UkSATSE monitors the situation in the country's airspace: there is currently no danger for civil aviation
There is the threatening and destabilizing activity of large-scale Russian troop movements along Ukraine's borders without prior notice.

The Ukrainian side is also ready to provide full information on the condition of air navigation services and aviation safety in Ukraine for the sake of coordinated actions in the future.
Ukraine has a special early warning procedure for civil aviation to respond immediately on detected and potential threats arising in the conflict zone.

Today is World Meteorological Day
Today is World Meteorological Day, another professional holiday for our enterprise, because en-route meteorological service is one of the components of air navigation service. This is very important for safety, since weather phenomena have a significant impact on take-offs and landings, at different altitudes on the route. The crew must be prepared for every weather condition - deteriorating visibility, low cloud cover, wind gusts, turbulence, thunderstorms, and icing.
UkSATSE is a certified provider of en-route meteorological services. A centralised meteorological support system for air navigation has been in operation at the enterprise since 2009. Our meteorologists work around the clock in the meteorological tracking bodies that operate in every air traffic control centre in Ukraine. And even in the period of the COVID-19 crisis they have no less work, because the accuracy and regularity of weather information must be the same whether for one flight or for hundreds of flights.

Andrii Yarmak, head of UkSATSE: The most optimistic forecasts suggest that aviation will not reach 2019 levels before 2024
The year 2020 was the most challenging year for civil aviation in modern times. Global passenger traffic fell by 66% from 1999 levels. In fact, the industry has collapsed. But mankind simply cannot abandon aviation. The main challenge in these circumstances is to preserve the industry's infrastructure, so that when the epidemic is defeated, there will be something to rebuild. Air navigation is one of important infrastructure part of aviation without which no flights are possible in principle.
Ukrainian News has talked to Andrey Yarmak, Acting Director of Ukrainian State Air Traffic Services Enterprise (UkSATSE), about how the enterprise managed to survive the crisis, future development scenarios for the company and the industry as a whole, and how to develop Ukraine's transit potential amid Russian aggression and closed zones in the Crimea and the East of the country.

WOMEN IN AVIATION. Special project for March 8
The history of aviation has plenty of evidence to show that the industry is also a woman's domain, as are many other fields of activity that were originally considered a strictly male endeavor. Although the world is still far from perfect when it comes to gender equality but in Ukraine today no one is surprised to see a female pilot at the control stick of an aeroplane or a female air traffic controller managing the movement of planes in the sky. There are many female professionals in UkSATSE, thanks to their contribution the enterprise, and air navigation in general, have become what they are today. We would like to offer you a few stories about women in the aviation professions at our enterprise.

Guardian Angels: how air traffic controllers work at Boryspil Vechirnii Kyiv
Apart from pilots, who directly fly the aircraft, there is actually a large team of specialists involved in servicing the flights. This applies, above all, to air traffic controllers who ensure that planes take off successfully, avoid other planes and land safely. Every time they start their shift, they literally share the responsibility with a crew for the lives of the passengers, and in crisis situations, they are ready to help find a way out. They are called Guardian Angels in America. Our todays interviewee, Artur YUSHKOV, a 26-year-old air traffic controller working at UkSATSE Aerodrome Control Tower located at Boryspil airport, found himself in this hugely responsible and stressful job.
