The tower simulator to be installed in Croatia Control’s Zagreb facilities will include two controller positions, two pseudo pilot positions and an instructor position. The development of 10 custom aerodromes simulating Croatian airports where air traffic controllers operate is also included. TotalControl’s leading-edge TrueView graphics technology will provide an unparalleled, life-like tower experience.
Airways International CEO Sharon Cooke says, “We’re delighted to be chosen by Croatia Control to supply and install a TotalControl simulator into their operations. We look forward to working with Croatia Control to deliver this solution, in turn enhancing their training capabilities for air traffic control operations throughout Croatia.”

Onsite installation of the TotalControl simulator in Zagreb will commence in early 2024, with installation and commissioning expected to be complete by May 2024.
