A large TotalControl tower simulator at Malaysia’s Mukah Airport has been successfully tested and installed remotely, in another example of an innovative approach to simulator delivery by Airways International (AIL) during the Covid-19 pandemic.
AIL partnered with International Aeradio – a Malaysian-based integrator of aviation technologies to provide a turnkey simulation solution for use by air traffic controllers at the new Mukah Airport. A 220° LCD tower simulator has been installed and commissioned, along with a procedural simulator which will shortly be operational following the US$70 million airport development. The Mukah Airport simulator is the second TotalControl simulation project to be successfully completed as a remote installation. It follows the eight-month project to remotely install a suite of TotalControl simulators for Avinor Air Navigation Services, Norway, completed in early March 2021.
The TotalControl simulation solution will be used by Malaysian air traffic controllers for training at Mukah Airport, where they can control traffic in exercises that mimic the real world. The simulator imitates the full air traffic control flight information region and utilizes AIL’s unique TrueView technology for life-like graphics – enhancing the quality and speed of ATC training and significantly reducing on-the-job training time.Email Post to a Friend
