Tower, Gate and Airfield

Tower – Top efficiency from approach to departure

ADB SAFEGATE’s Tower solutions provide all the information that ATC staff need. They ensure that ATC is fully aware of the status of equipment and has full control over aircraft and vehicle positions. Ensuring they have this information at their fingertips helps ATC staff when getting aircraft from touchdown to gate in the most efficient way possible, leading to fewer planes waiting at the gate, at holding positions, queuing for take-off or circling in the air for landing. Our ATC training offer gives an introduction of the tasks and responsibilities performed at the ATC and the tools used to accomplish this. ​The trainings are usually given in Malmö, Sweden. But can be requested all over the world.

ATC+ 1: Introduction to Air Traffic Control:

ATC+ 1 is a three-day training course illustrating the operational principles of air traffic control. The course is delivered in collaboration with Entry Point North, one of the world’s leading ATC academies. The course is designed to give students a foundation level of knowledge and an understanding of the work of an air traffic controller and the control systems they use for safe aircraft guidance.

Gate – Keeping safe at the gate

Some 80% of airport ramp accidents occur at the gate area. This is no surprise as these are busy, confined areas where aircraft, vehicles and people are in constant motion in all types of weather conditions. Using an A-VDGS and an Apron Management System will increase efficiency, decrease turn-around times and improve safety at the gate. Our GATE-Plus training gives an overview of how to implement these improvements. ​The trainings are usually given in Malmö, Sweden. But can be requested all over the world.

Gate+: Advanced Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) Product Training and Apron Management Training

This five-day course guides trainees through the different docking systems and apron management systems that ADB SAFEGATE offers. GATE+ provides you first with an understanding of the design, installation, functionality and maintenance procedures of these docking systems. Secondly, it offers a bird’s eye view of the actions performed by an aircraft and its handlers on the airport apron. The training will focus on our Safedock X and SafeControl Apron Management (SAM), a software package used to maximize safety and efficiency on the apron.
