The RVSM Programme was completed in December 2002 after the successful implementation of RVSM in 41 States in January 2002. In April 2003, Mr Sultana was appointed as Head of Business Division Network Capacity. Subsequently, he was assigned additional responsibility for the Dynamic Management of European Airspace Network (DMEAN) Framework Programme. In October 2006, Mr Sultana became EUROCONTROL’s Head of Airspace, Network Planning and Navigation Division. On 1 June 2008, Mr Sultana moved to the Central Flow Management Unit (CFMU) as Head of Operations and on 2 Jan 2009 became the Deputy Director CFMU responsible for Network Operations and Information Management.

He became Deputy Director of Civil Aviation within the same Administration in 1984, retaining direct responsibility for the Air Traffic Services organisation until his departure from Malta.

    Informatie over mr. McMillan:
    Mr. McMillan participated in the Task Force on Risks to Civil Aviation arising from Conflict Zones (TF RCZ) as a representative of the Flight Safety Foundation - an independent group that advocates for the improvement of aviation safety throughout the world, and was asked to chair the meeting given his past experience as the UK’s Director General of Civil Aviation and as Director General of Eurocontrol. His role was to lead the discussions of participating ICAO Member States and help them come to agreement on a work programme for ICAO to take forward on cataloguing and, where possible, clarifying Member State responsibilities as well as on centralised methods for improving Member State practices in the field of risk assessment, information sharing and the like. The Task Force also made some recommendations on centralised processes on operations over conflict zones, often for action by ICAO.
