The CMA has a small permanent staff augmented by specialists across a range of disciplines and skills. Since 1985 the scope of the CMA has included flight operations (pilot/navigator) and analytical, mathematical, technical, and engineering skills provided by NATS Ltd, the UK Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP). The operating costs of the CMA and the maintenance of the Height Monitoring Unit are recovered from ICAO under a Joint Financing Arrangement signed in 1995 by the governments of the United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Portugal, Iceland, Ireland (NATSPG Member States) and ICAO.
The CMA is located adjacent to the Shanwick Oceanic Area Control Centre, in Prestwick, Scotland in accommodation provided by NATS on behalf of the United Kingdom. While functionally autonomous from its host State the CMA can access specialist support and ATC expertise.
