Airways International Ltd has signed a contract with the Civil Aviation Academy (CAA) of Nepal to deliver a TotalControl tower and surveillance simulation solution for use by Nepalese air traffic controllers.

CAA selected Airways TotalControl simulators for CAA’s air traffic control training facilities at Sanothimi Bhaktapur, following a robust contract tender and negotiation process involving Air Traffic Control (ATC) simulator providers from around the globe.

The CAA contract is to supply and install a 360-degree tower simulator, an approach surveillance simulator and an area surveillance simulator, as well as six simulator pilot positions. The Airways solution will imitate the Nepal Flight Information Region with real-world traffic scenarios including weather.

Four tower environments using TotalControl’s advanced TrueView visuals will be developed for CAA.   The next-generation graphics technology is a hybrid rendering of high-resolution imagery from the control tower, and underlying terrain data.

Onsite installation of Total Control simulators at the CAA’s training academy in Sanothimi, Bhaktapur Nepal is set to commence after April 2023, with the project expected to be complete in mid-2023.
