60 controllers from PANSA will receive ADI/RAD training

Following a successful tender process, Entry Point North was selected to deliver ADI/RAD training to the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency (PANSA). The training of a total of 60 Polish tower air traffic controllers will start in the last quarter of 2018 and will be concluded in the first quarter of 2019. The course participants will be divided into ten groups, each group spending five intensive training days at our academy in Malmö.

The ADI/RAD training will provide the participants with aerodrome control competences to use surveillance radar equipment in the towers. Each course consists of one day of theory followed by four days of hands-on practice in our state-of-the-art 180-degree TWR simulator.

The generic airport featured in the simulation exercises includes one major apron with multiple gate areas, two remote aprons, multiple taxiways, one main runway and one minor crossing runway. The exercises will provide a mix of IFR and VFR traffic in all types of weather.

The course participants will complete their training with a theoretical exam followed by individual feedback, after which they receive their training certificates.

Last year Entry Point North has successfully delivered Ground Movement Surveillance (GMS) training for 63 controllers in Warsaw tower and training instructors. We are pleased to welcome PANSA back to our academy in Malmö.
