Micro Nav Limited has completed the upgrade of the ATC simulator and the addition of a 3D display system, incorporating its BEST ATC solution and 3D image generator software packages for Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA). The project was completed on schedule and to budget.

The installation, completed in April, comprises a radar and tower controller with a pair of pseudo pilot positions, a suite of bespoke aircraft and liveries, all used in a complex terrain that enables a realistic training environment for the Air Traffic Services Team. The plateau-like and undulating location of LBA meant an intricate model was generated which further adds to the realism for the training program for the Air Traffic Services Team at LBA.

Work on the software upgarde and preliminary acceptance testing was conducted at Micro Nav, with the final formal acceptance testing carried out and passing in-situ at LBA's ATC training wing. BEST has been used for a number of years at the airport.
