East China Controllers sent to Sichuan Guanghan Flight Institute for simulator training


Tower controllers from Shanghai’s Pudong and Hongqiao airports were sent to Sichuan Guanghan Flight Institute to undergo tower simulator training. The Terminal Control Center of the East China Air Traffic Management Bureau (ATMB) of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) organized the tower simulator training. The East China ATMB Terminal Control Center divided the controllers from Pudong and Hongqiao airports into nine separate groups and sent in batches to undergo relevant simulation exercises in Sichuan Guanghan Flight Institute. The objective of the training is to sharpen up the skills of controllers in line with the opening of Pudong Airport’s third runway in March 2008. The training will help familiarize the controllers with the methods of commanding a double terminal building of the third runway and will prepare them to handle the smooth and steady operation of the airport’s control center. The Terminal Control Center of the East China ATMB of the CAAC gave Sichuan Guanghan Flight Institute the task of developing and facilitating the training exercise. This includes coordination of training work details, establishment of a reasonable and detailed training program, preparation of training plan, ensuring captain operation precautions, and formulation of relevant subjects including the preparation of exercise notes and emergency communication responses. By the end of 2007, three groups of controllers successfully completed relevant training exercises on tower simulation. The trainees expressed that they have acquired much during the training. The controllers who underwent training said that the advanced exercise on the tri-runway double terminal building significantly helped them familiarize themselves with the new operation method. Accordingly, the tower simulator training will prepare the trainees with the fundamentals needed to operate the tri-runway of Pudong Airport in 2008.
