Simulators at our training sites
Entry Point North uses state-of-the-art BEST simulators from the UK-based company MicroNav
and COOPANS simulators. At our five training sites, we are equipped with:
- Entry Point North Sweden - 90 simulator positions, 8 x 180° TWR 3D, 2 x 360° TWR 3D
- Entry Point North Ireland - 61 simulator positions (40 can be configured as COOPANS), 20 (Shannon) + 16 (Dublin) radar/pilot positions (dedicated COOPANS). 2 x 180° TWR 3D and one 270°/360° TWR 3D
- Entry Point Central Hungary - 34 simulator positions, 2 x 180° TWR 3D
- Entry Point North Denmark - 270° TWR 3D simulators consisting of 5 TWR controller positions and 10 pilot / controller (ACS/APS) positions
- Entry Point North Spain - 14 simulator positions, 3 x 180° TWR 3D
The training positions are flexible and can be grouped or un-grouped quickly as needed, to run exercises in stand-alone or suite mode (executive and planner), groups or full “control centre” configuration, all depending on the training requirements.
Connection to network
All positions are connected to the same network, which provides great flexibility in the use of the simulator facilities and it enables us to run combined courses, e.g. from ACS to ADI.
360° tower simulators
One of our 360° TWR simulators consists of 16*65” UHD displays in portrait mode, installed in a physical 270 circular set-up, with the possibility to show a full 360 view.
Each display is driven in 4K making the scenery and airplanes look just as authentic and distinctive as if you were looking out of the window. The TWR simulator can be operated with up to three controller positions and as many pilots as requested.
The second TWR simulator is equipped with 3D displays, which are based on a rear projection on eight screens - each screen is 180 cm high and 240 cm wide. The simulator includes up to three controller positions. Each controller position consists of one radar display, one AUX display, one touch display for communication and one touch display for lighting panel.
270° tower simulators
Our 270° tower simulators are based on a 22*65” UHD displays in portrait mode, with a diameter of 8 m and is 1,5 m high. The simulators consist of up to five TWR controller positions. It is possible to show a 360° field of view on the physical 270° simulator.
180° tower simulators
Each of our 180° TWR simulators are equipped with a 3D display system consisting of four HD displays, up to 55”. Each of the TWRs includes up to two controller positions.
Each controller position consists of one radar display, one AUX display, one touch display for communication and one touch display for lighting panel.
A radar/pilot position consists, in its standard configuration, of one position with one radar display 40”, one AUX display and one touch-display for the communication.
Our COOPANS simulators are based on the Topsky product from the French based company Thales
There are two different simulators. One (based in Shannon) is equipped for training only and the other (based both in Shannon and in Dublin) can be configured for either training or as contingency. All COOPANS simulators are equipped with 2Kx2K displays.
Our on-site solutions The benefit of a Mobile On-Site Simulator (MOS) is delivering the simulation aspect of training to the customer in order to perform the training on their own premises. Entry Point North offers the MOS in two different solutions:
The Mobile On-Site Simulator Box (MOS-box) offers the customer flexibility in the number and type of simulator positions to be temporarily installed on the customer’s premises. It can vary between one radar and planner position to a fully simulated control centre.
The Mobile On-Site Simulator Trailer (MOS-trailer) is a 13 sqm fully equipped trailer, that consists of a 180° TWR simulator with two controller positions (including radar) and two pilot positions. It can easily operate almost everywhere as it only needs a parking spot, access to power and high speed internet. The MOS-trailer is ideal for small to moderate sized airports for regular ATM training, refresher and emergency training, etc.
