#2285: Marine Links Serco Black Hand OOOI NATS To 3-D Inefficiencies Of NetJets MH Drones
Plum City – (AbelDanger.net): United States Marine Field McConnell has linked Serco’s deployment of Black Hand* OOOI navigators for carbon capping the aviation sector under National Air Traffic Services (NATS) rules to 3-D inefficiencies on the fatal routes flown last year by NetJets pilot trackers of the Boeing drones of MH Flights 17 and 370.
McConnell alleges that the drug-hub banker HSBC paid Black Hand OOOI navigators to track the doomed Malaysia Airlines planes and – after NATS staff detected fuel-wasting check turns and 3-D inefficiencies – hand them off to NetJets pilots so the droned planes, pilots, crews and passengers could be carbon-capped to lower the risks of catastrophic anthropogenic warming.
Black Hand* – Drug-hub navigators with a “Privy Seal License to Track, Film and Kill” for the City of London’s Honourable Artillery Company 1537; The Master Mariners and Air Pilots (formerly GAPAN) 1929, and The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts 1638 – whose alumni include the United States’ Presidents James Monroe, Chester Alan Arthur, Calvin Coolidge and John F. Kennedy and – perhaps – Barack ‘Choom Gang‘ Obama.
McConnell is exposing Serco’s deployment of Black Hand OOOI navigators to carbon cap the aviation sector under NATS rules where 3-D inefficiencies are eliminated as was allegedly the case when NetJets pilots tracked and destroyed the Boeing drones of MH Flights 17 and 370.

The global aviation industry gathers in Geneva, Switzerland [where HSBC

Environment Summit where it expects to clearly demonstrate the progress it has
been making to deliver on a set of unprecedented environmental targets. Following
last year’s summit, the industry put forward the targets – it says that it will
cap net carbon emissions from aviation from 2020 and by 2050 will reduce its net emissions to half of
what they were in 2005 – in order to unblock a political process that it says
was stalled. ..

Metrics for General ANSP Use …. The
CANSO group strongly supports the measuring of trajectory inefficiencies that
incorporate the horizontal and vertical trajectory throughout the flight, as a
means of determining opportunities to improve fuel efficiency. In addition, taxi
delays can be measured using the Airline Service Quality Performance (ASQP)
data set that contains the scheduled and actual pushback times, actual take-off
time, actual landing time, and scheduled and actual gate arrival times. This is
often referred to as ‘Out, Off, On, In’ (OOOI) data. When available,
airport surveillance data can also be used to measure taxi delays. This phase
of flight method using radar data has been used in the U.S/Europe Operational
Performance Comparison report mentioned above. Attachment 1 provided a
comprehensive guide for estimating ATM efficiency pools by phase of flight.
NATS has also developed, with peer review from the M&M group and others in
the aviation industry, a metric that seeks to reflect the vertical and
horizontal inefficiencies in flights. This is a proxy for CO2 as smoother
vertical and more direct lateral profiles deliver fuel burn and emissions
reductions compared to stepped climbs, descents and deviations from lateral
point to point tracks. The NATS metric is called the 3 Dimensional Inefficiency
(3Di) Score. Eurocontrol Performance Review Unit (PRU), FAA and Airservices
Australia are also considering the use of vertical and lateral elements of
flight profiles in their flight efficiency work. The NATS 3Di method
was recently approved by the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) as a method to
set targets and financially incentivise improved fuel efficiency in NATS
airspace and is described in detail in Attachment 2. Key Consensus Point: A
measure of ANSP CO2 and fuel burn performance should take account of both
vertical and horizontal elements of flight The M&M subgroup promotes a
structured approach to measuring trajectory efficiency by identifying vertical
and horizontal (or time) inefficiencies. The key to the success of this
approach is ANSPs having access to trajectory data for flights in their
airspace. In most cases ANSPs must work with their neighbours to share
trajectory data and focus on optimising cross border efficiencies. CANSO
recommends that the sharing of post-operational data is a good first step in
the fuel efficiency improvement process. Analysis of efficiency by phase of
flight improves the understanding of how to make improvements.”
