National Air Traffic Control Simulator is in a Foundation University For the First Time

Nişantaşı University signed the “National Air Traffic Control Simulator (AtcTRsim)” agreement developed in cooperation with the State Airports Authority (DHMİ) and TÜBİTAK. Air traffic control simulator where its aim is to give the students advanced training will take place for the first time in a foundation university of Turkey.

By speaking at the signing ceremony with the participation of HAVELSAN authorities, Nişantaşı University Rector Prof. Dr. Esra Hatipoğlu stated that the project is very important for them and said, “Our students took part in this project with us.

It is one of the most important fields of activity of HAVELSAN. Thus, Nişantaşı University has led the way. A university has acquired a simulator for advanced air traffic control in such a large scope. I hope our young people who will be educated here will be in very important places in the aviation sector of the future.”
