Air Traffic Control gallery opens at The National Museum of Computing


High-fidelity Air Traffic Control Simulator

The centre-piece of the gallery is a high-fidelity Air Traffic Control Simulator that gives visitors a real sense of what it is like to be an air traffic controller at a Nats control centre or major airport today. In replay mode, visitors can observe aircraft movements on a panoramic three-screen virtual airport or a Control Centre radar display and listen to radio transmits between the controllers and pilots. In interactive mode, visitors can take up position at the simulators and experience, hands-on, being a controller while a member of the museum team acts as a pilot, flying the simulated aircraft in response to commands from the visitors.

The Nats Air Traffic Control Gallery can be visited by the public on the tours of the museum.
