Simulators at our training sites
Entry Point North uses state-of-the-art BEST simulators from the UK-based company MicroNav
and TOPSKY/COOPANS simulators. 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. 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.
Our site in Malmö is equipped with 94 simulator positions, eight 180° TWR 3D simulators and two 270°/360° TWR 3D simulators. In Stockholm, Entry Point North has eight simulator positions (five pilot and three controller positions) and a 270°/360° TWR 3D simulator. At our site in Norrköping we work with ten radar/pilot simulator positions.
Entry Point North in Shannon is equipped with 48 simulator positions (forty can be configured as Topsky/COOPANS), twenty radar/pilot positions (dedicated Topsky/COOPANS) and two 180° TWR 3D simulators. Entry Point North in Dublin is equipped with thirteen simulator positions, sixteen radar/pilot positions (dedicated Topsky/COOPANS) and one 270°/360° TWR 3D simulator.
Entry Point Central in Budapest is equipped with 34 simulator positions and two 180° TWR 3D simulators.
Entry Point North Denmark in Copenhagen is equipped with one 270°/360° TWR 3D simulator consisting of five TWR controller positions, and ten pilot/controller (ACS/APS) positions.
Entry Point North Spain in Madrid is equipped with fourteen simulator positions and three 180° TWR 3D simulators.
At our upcoming site Entry Point North in Brussels we will be equipped with fifty simulator positions, three 180° TWR 3D simulators and one 360° TWR 3D simulator.
270°/360° tower simulators
Two of our 270° tower simulators consist of 22 portrait-mode 65” UHD displays. These simulators have a total diameter of 8 meters, are 1,5 meters high and can provide up to five TWR controller positions. Three 270° tower simulators consist of 16 portrait-mode 65” UHD displays. These simulators can be operated with up to three controller positions and as many pilots as requested.
All simulators have a physical 270° setup, but can display 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. Each controller position consists of one radar display, one AUX display, one touch display for communication and one touch display for lighting panel.
Each of our eighteen 180° tower simulators are equipped with a 3D display system consisting of four HD displays, up to 55”. Each of the towers 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 the lighting panel.
In its standard configuration, a radar/pilot position consists of one position with one 40” radar display, 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
Entry Point North has 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 m² fully equipped trailer that consists of a 180° tower 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.
