UFA, Inc. delivers ATTower® tower simulator solution to Gatwick Airport
Burlington, MA, March 1st, 2017– UFA, Inc. (UFA), a leading provider of Air Traffic Simulation and Voice Technologies, announces that it has delivered an ATTower Training Solution to Air Navigation Solutions Ltd at Gatwick Airport.
The installation uses a multi-channel ATView® HD LCD-based display system for viewing of the 3D airport visual model and simulated traffic situation. UFA created a new 3D airport visual database for Gatwick that represents the current state of the airport. Replicas of the Gatwick weather, information and lighting displays were also created to improve the realism of the training. The 3rd party electronic flight strip system is integrated with ATTower so that the Controllers use the same system as available in the tower.
UFA CEO David Wolff commented, “Providing a training platform for the world’s busiest single-use runway operation at Gatwick demonstrates the capabilities of our ATTower simulator. We are pleased to be able to bring our industry-leading simulation expertise to the UK market.”
