CANSO Partnership Gives ANSPs Free Access to Micro Nav's ATC Simulation

Micro Nav and the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) have today announced a partnership to support CANSO’s ANSPs Members for a best-prepared restart of air traffic services.

This partnership sees Micro Nav making the full capabilities of their ATC radar and tower simulator available as a cloud-based tool to CANSO Members to help air traffic controllers worldwide maintain their competence and confidence.

Air traffic dropped to a historic low worldwide due to the impact of COVID-19. These unprecedented times have led to many challenges, including the provision of training and maintaining currency during prolonged low traffic volumes.

The cloud-based BEST ATC simulation platform will be available to Member ANSPs until the end of November 2020, along with associated online training and technical support, to enable users to maximise the benefit of this tool for their recovery.

“I believe this initiative could provide significant value to our members during these difficult times, enabling them to be as prepared as possible for the restart and recovery,” said CANSO Director General Simon Hocquard. “The partnership is another great example of organisations collaborating to safeguard the resiliency of our industry and to build a better future together.”

“Our vision, to make a positive difference to the world through simulation, has never been so appropriate as during these times. We are therefore delighted to offer our ATC simulation platform, trusted by ANSPs for over 30 years, to CANSO’s ANSP members in support of our industry’s recovery.” said Micro Nav’s Managing Director, Greg Pile.
