At the 4th meeting of the FLC Network South East, controllers provided valuable input to the discussion on the future of FLC and simplified cost option from the perspective of FLC practitioners. Documents previously discussed in the future working group were presented to controllers. Main conclusions were:
1) The work flow for FLC suggested by the working group is appreciated. Especially the option for sampling will greatly simplify FLC work and make it more effective.
2) The suggested draft FLC report goes in the right direction. It requires work on the details (eg concrete FLC questions) and some streamlining of the structure.
3) The suggested simplified cost options were met with enthusiasm. Controllers would even welcome further simplified cost options, especially for travelling and staff costs.
Discussion among FLC practitioners will continue at the meeting of the FLC Network South on 27 September in Valencia.
