Defining Responsibilities in the Cloud on Vantage Point

It is very important for those involved in the operation of a flight to understand which portion of the flight they are responsible for, as well as within what parameters they need to operate. Pilots must maintain the altitude and headings assigned to them within specified limits. The controllers must keep aircraft separated from each other by pre-defined distances in 3 dimensions. This system works well, because it allows personnel to perform the assigned roles and manage their portion of the operation, ensuring flights to operate smoothly with no surprise or accident.
