    INTRODUCTIONThe growth of aircraft movements during the

    days of the event points to a need for greater ca-

    pacity and efficiency in the provision of air traffic

    services (ATS). A great event brings with it new de-

    mands and a greater need for planning, making

    it imperative to maintain the security, fluidity and

    efficiency aspects already present in the care pro-

    vided to air traffic.

    The work required to achieve excellence begins

    with the careful implementation of an extensive,

    clear, objective and feasible planning. Thus, en-

    suring maximum performance of ATS services,

    management of air traffic flow (ATFM), defense

    and security of air operations and management

    of Brazilian airspace and, so, minimizing potential

    impacts of the expected increase of air traffic.

    Through decades, Brazil has consolidated a lead-

    ing position in air traffic management (ATM), not

    limited to investments in new equipment and fa-

    cilities, but going beyond, developing proprietary

    processes, emphasizing specialized training and

    incorporating modern concepts with efficiency,

    speed and flexibility.

    This guide is only to illustrate the function and present briefly the implications and operational constraints resulting from the completion of the Confederations Cup 2013, do not constitute an official instrument of appointment.

    Practical Guide for Consultation Amendments to Airspace during Fifa Confederations Cup Brazil 2013

    The country has the responsibility to admin-

    ister the territorial airspace (8,511,965 km ) and

    the airspace overlying the oceanic area, which ex-

    tends to the meridian 10 W, totaling 22 million

    square kilometers. Within this space, there are sev-

    eral events going on at once, such as international

    and domestic commercial flights, general avia-

    tion, training, military operations and maneuvers

    flights, flight-testing and various aero sport activi-

    ties and everything should always work in perfect

    harmony. The quality and effectiveness in the use

    of airspace will also remain during the Confedera-

    tions Cup, thanks to the work of different sectors,

    including the Brazilian Air Force (FAB).

    The Brazilian Air Force has designed a planning

    for FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013, which

    had as north the safety and maintenance of a fast,

    safe and orderly air traffic flow.

    While the Brazilian Aerospace Defense Com-

    mand (COMDABRA) made a detailed planning

    of the necessary actions for the safety of the air-

    space, the Department of Airspace Control (DE-

    CEA), through the Air Navigation Management

    Center (CGNA), produced an action plan in order to

    maintain the efficiency of air traffic flow, considering

    the increasing demand and restrictions on some por-

    tions of airspace.

    This is not the first time DECEA outlines a plan

    to manage air traffic flow at a major event. During

    United Nations Conference on Sustainable Develop-

    ment (Rio +20), in June 2012, the Department had a

    successful experience and praised, using for the first

    time in Brazil a methodology and military structure in

    event calendar. This methodology will be repeated in

    the next huge events held in Brazil, such as Confed-

    erations Cup and World Youth Day (2013), World Cup

    (2014), the Olympics and Paralympic (2016).

    Throughout the Confederations Cup 2013, safety

    and efficiency, binomial featuring our airspace, will

    leave indelible marks that serve as a legacy for Brazil.

    AIRPORTS AND THEIR VOCATIONSWith the continental dimensions of Brazil, many

    cities would like and be able to receive in their

    airports air operations involved in FIFA Confedera-

    tions Cup Brazil 2013.

    The selection of airports was based on technical

    criteria and, although chosen airports dont neces-

    sarily meet all criteria, they certainly have a larger

    set of capabilities to meet the demands of the event.

    The interest and availability of the airport Admin-

    istrator, distance from the host city, existing infra-

    structure in the vicinity of the airport (access roads,

    traffic flow, quick access to state and federal high-

    ways), airport capacity (number of vacancies for

    regular domestic and international aviation, general

    aviation and military aviation involved in the event),

    runways compound (length of landing and takeoff

    runways, taxiway, resistance of the runways floor

    and parking lots) and air traffic services (navigation

    aids, air traffic control, meteorology, communica-

    tions, aeronautical information, procedures for en-

    try and exit) are essential for the provision of qual-

    ity service to our visitors during the period in which

    the official games of FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil

    2013 will take place.

    Below are demonstrative charts with host cit-

    ies and their respective destination and alter-

    nate airports:

    COORDINATE AIRPORTS

    To maintain the balance between the demand and

    declared capacities of airports, keeping the airport

    system capable of absorbing the growth in aircraft

    movements during FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil

    2013, the CGNA along with the National Civil Avia-

    tion Agency (ANAC) will coordinate the airports.

    The coordination of an airport is a methodology

    that consists of setting predetermined time intervals

    for takeoff and landing operations of all aircraft op-

    erating at the airport in order to regulate its use, pre-

    venting its operating capacity be exceeded to main-

    tain efficiency in the provision of air traffic services.

    When an airport is declared coordinated, it means

    that every flight intention will be contingent upon

    obtaining ATC SLOT for landing or takeoff.

    The coordination of airports will take place from

    June 13, 2013 to July 2, 2013. The ANAC will allocate

    SLOT for regular commercial flights (international

    and domestic), no regular commercial flights (inter-

    national and domestic) and flights of delegations.

    The CGNA will be in charge of allocating SLOT for

    Heads of State, VIP and General aviation.

    To register and know the procedures for obtaining

    an ATC SLOT, the user should visit the CGNA home

    page on the INTERNET at www.cgna.gov.br and click

    on the link SLOT.

    ANAC will decide which airports will hold the con-

    dition of coordinated and shall communicate to us-

    ers both through a notice to airmen (NOTAM) and its

    own explanatory booklet.

    AIRSPACE RESTRICTIONS

    During the event, we will be visited by tourists

    from all over the world, businessmen, Heads

    of State and Government, sports officials,

    personalities from different fields and international

    press. Anyway, Brazil will be the worlds center of

    attention during15 days.

    Following the safety criteria adopted worldwide

    in events as important and great as FIFA

    Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 and keeping the

    level of the air traffic services provided, FAB has

    created exclusion zones (reserved, restricted or

    forbidden) in certain portions of Brazilian airspace

    with different sizes and levels of access.

    The safety and operational impact, among

    others, were the criteria adopted for creation of

    exclusion zones. The safety of the public, athletes,

    officials, aircraft and installations, associated to

    constant concern to reduce operational impacts

    for users of Brazilian airspace, guided the location,

    size and levels of access of those areas.

    Permits for entry in segregated airspace depend

    on the nature and intentions of the flight, such as

    aircraft carrying officials, delegations of football

    teams, commercial aircraft with regular domestic

    and/or international operations, general aviation,

    military use, air defense, transport of personnel

    and/or material (civil or military) aircraft related to

    public safety, SAR aircraft and aircraft ambulance.

    The excluded areas are located in the lower

    airspace of flight information regio
