Dual operator consoles for Bole International Airport
Working with clients Peja East Africa for the Civil Aviation Authority Ethiopia, Thinking Space have designed and exported ten dual operator Air Traffic consoles to Bole International Airport, Ethiopia.
The dual operator consoles were custom designed to suit each operator position, complete with equipment mounts, creating eight different combinations of console required for the tower, approach and ground control rooms. In addition, a technical position as well as a search and rescue console, complete with communications unit, under desk keyboard trays, radar monitor mounting and map displays were designed to suit the clients requirements.
All the consoles were designed and manufactured in the UK, with the client visiting the factory for a factory acceptance test, before the consoles were crated to their destination in Ethiopia. With the ease of reassembly and some training back in the factory, the client successfully installed all ten consoles at the airport to the satisfaction of the Civil Aviation Authority in Ethiopia.
