Air Traffic special 2017 newsletter now available
The latest newsletter from Thinking Space is our Air Traffic Special newsletter, which is now available to download from Air Traffic Control Furniture
Ahead of two Air Traffic exhibitions during February and March, where Thinking Space are attending, we highlight some specific examples of where our expertise in this sector has proved invaluable to our clients.
In this latest newsletter, we feature the radar room at Leeds Bradford Airport. A tricky working space meant that our custom designed radar console solution for four operators had to be designed and installed within the constraints of the building, whilst ensuring that ergonomic working conditions and futureproofing of the console was met.
Our training simulator solutions are proving popular, with the latest 360 degree tower training simulator installed in a South American facility. A collaboration of products from the Thinking Space portfolio meant that the entire facility could be designed and manufactured by us.
We also highlight one of the issues when working within ATC environments, access. Illustrated in a case study example, the Irish Aviation Authority requested some modifications to their existing tower consoles at Dublin International Airport. Thinking Space rose to the challenge of working within restricted timescales and tight tolerances. Due to an upgrade to an electronic flight strip management system, Thinking Space created a new top section of the 5 operator existing console, using their design and manufacturing expertise. With installation being restricted to overnight working hours and only a few minor adjustments necessary on site, a professional installation service was achieved.
Thinking Space provide a global service to clients, and in the case of The Civil Aviation Authority in Ethiopia, we worked with Peja East Africa to design, export and install 10 dual operator consoles for the control tower, approach, and ground control rooms at Bole International Airport. Peja East Africa received installation training at our factory here in the UK before installing all ten consoles successfully.
Our international prescence is growing, so if you have a project you’d like us to help with, we now have 9 representatives worldwide to provide a local service for you. Why not pop along and see a demonstration of our custom Air Traffic consoles this week at Avalon, Australia, and next week at World ATM Madrid.
