An air traffic control training facility purpose-built for international students has been officially opened by Airways New Zealand to support growing global demand for Airways' world-class ATC training. The new facility opposite the Massey University campus in Palmerston North is already being put to good use, with 32 students from Saudi Arabia's General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) currently undertaking ab-initio training, and a group from Saudi Arabia National Guard started their ATC training at the centre in April. With three aerodrome air traffic control simulators and six radar simulators, all developed with Airways world-leading Total Control simulator technology, the Palmerston North training centre is now set up to cater for increased demand from global air navigation service providers.
