Airways New Zealand, a leading commercial Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP), and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Lebanon officially opened an advanced air traffic control (ATC) simulation facility – future-proofing ATC training in Lebanon for decades to come.

Airways International, the commercial arm of the New Zealand air navigation service provider, has completed installation of a TotalControl LCD tower simulator and two radar/non-radar simulators at Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport after a 12-month project. The facility, to be used to train DGCA’s ATC controllers and students using simulated scenarios that mimic the real world, is now fully commissioned after the completion of site acceptance testing. The contract to build and install the simulator was between Airways International and ICAO on behalf of DGCA Lebanon.
