BAE Systems Delivers Air Traffic Control Simulator To Coventry Airport


Frimley, United Kingdom - BAE Systems have delivered the MASE (Modular Airspace Synthetic Environment) to Air Traffic Services at Coventry Airport. MASE simulators are currently in service at East Midlands and Filton airports, RAF Shawbury and RAF Boulmer.

Coventry Airport has a requirement to assist in training its controllers in Approach Radar Control as well as Procedural Control on the single student, 2 pseudo pilot system. Coventry staff are currently being trained for ATC ratings using the MASE simulator at the BAE Systems’ air traffic control college in South Wales.

David Smillie, Manager Air Traffic Services, Coventry airport said “The MASE Simulator is now going to help enormously with initial, continuation and training in unusual circumstances. It is very impressive in its accuracy of our real system. During one recent exercise our controllers even forgot it was the simulator, thinking it was real.”
