Airways International Ltd has been selected by Avinor Air Navigation Services (ANS) to deliver TotalControl simulator systems at six air traffic control units throughout Norway.

Avinor ANS awarded the contract to Airways in mid-April. The contract is to supply and install multiple Tower and Approach simulation systems at Avinor ANS’ facilities at Gardermoen Tromsø, Bodø, Værnes, Flesland and Sola airports. The contract also includes 17 custom aerodromes and six mobile simulators.

The first TotalControl simulator is scheduled to be installed and operational at Gardermoen Tower by 1 October 2020. Airways has also signed a five-year contract with Avinor ANS for simulator license, support and maintenance.

Airways worked with Avinor ANS to develop an implementation plan intended to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on project delivery and implementation timeframes during this period of travel and border restrictions. 

“The strategy outlines a clear plan to commence Gardermoen training with new simulators on or before 1 October. We have assured Avinor ANS of our absolute commitment to deliver a simulator solution that meets their requirements within this timeframe,” Ms Cooke says.

Airways’ TotalControl has real-world tower graphics that take advantage of terrain mapping data, photo-realistic 3D rendered models and TotalControl’s TrueView technology. The TotalControl simulation suite also includes advanced surveillance and emulates operational systems, creating an immersive learning environment.

Developed by Airways in partnership with New Zealand-based 3D graphics experts Animation Research Ltd., TotalControl simulators feature modern, easy to use interfaces and functionality, and a range of flexible configurations to meet every simulation need.
