Posted 28 November 2016 · Add Comment

Dubai Air Navigation Services (dans) showcased its cutting edge technology and innovative concepts utilised in providing safe, efficient and expeditious air traffic management services in the Dubai Airspace through various activities both within the Aviation sector and to the public at Dubai Innovation week.

The company displayed its Tower Simulator (TOSIM) during the event that was held by the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) for the first time in its history earlier at the beginning of the week. As the event showcased the various innovative initiatives present in the Aviation sector, the Tower Simulator demonstration was a representation of the actual cutting edge Tower simulator facility operated by dans in its headquarters in Al Maktoum International Airport. The TOSIM, which is the World’s largest 360 degrees system, is capable of mimicking any airport environment, and is utilised by dans as a training facility to train Air Traffic Control Officers as well as being an experimental hub where all the new air traffic management procedures are thoroughly trailed before being implemented in live operations as their safety cases are being developed. In addition, the facility currently operates more than 1000 hours of training a year over 300 training days annually, providing regulatory training to 70 Air Traffic Controllers currently working in the Air Traffic Control Tower at Dubai International Airport (DXB).

The company also received a delegation of Air Traffic Control Officers from NaviAir, the air navigation services provider of Denmark, at is headquarters in Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC). The visit is part of a knowledge and expertise exchange program that the ANSP conducts for its Air Traffic Controllers, in order to gain international experience and have the opportunity to experience how leading ansps around the world are conducting their operations. As the delegation have selected Dubai Air Navigation Services as their preferred air navigation services provider (ansp) to visit, the familirisation trip included presentations in the Air Traffic Control Tower in DWC, the Approach Radar facility as well as the Tower Simulator (TOSIM) and the Radar simulator(RASIM) facilities.

Dans concluded its “Dubai Innovation Week” activities by receiving a delegation of cadets from Alpha Aviation Academy in the UAE. A group of 12 cadets on their academic programs to pursue their professional careers as pilots had the opportunity to visit the Air Traffic Control Tower , from where Air Traffic Controllers of Dubai Air Navigation Services manage one of the busiest airspaces globally – Dubai Airspace, as well as that of the World’s busiest airport interms of International passenger figures- Dubai International (DXB). The visit is part of the cadets academic program, as pilots interact on a regular basis with ATCOs during their daily jobs, and therefore it is crucial for them to experience the operational, technical and managerial aspects of Air Traffic Control to be able to have a holistic overview and a wider perspective of all airport mechanisms, which will inturn support them in being successful in their careers.
