Adacel to Supply ATC Simulators to Angola

14 November 2013

Adacel announced that the Company has entered into a contract to supply air traffic control (ATC) simulators to Angolan company TECANGOL, which will be used to equip ENANA’s aeronautical training center in the Republic of Angola. 

Adacel will supply TECANGOL with a MaxSim 240-degree Tower Simulator as well as ten individual Intelligent Communication Environment (ICE) Training Stations that can be used to generate exercises for aviation English Language Proficiency and Aerodrome Basic Training. TECANGOL provides consulting, technology and engineering services to ENANA (Empresa Nacional de Aeroportos e Navegação Aérea de Angola) and plans to utilise Adacel’s systems within ENANA’s aeronautical training center in Luanda. 

The MaxSim 240º simulator and ICE systems will allow Angolan air traffic controllers to have access to state-of-the art simulation technology, enhancing the training capability through exposure to control situations in simulated scenarios. Adacel’s products supplied under this contract will assist in enhancing the skills of these professionals and thus enabling them to perform in accordance with the highest international standards. 

The contract between Adacel and TECANGOL was signed by Vitor Camilo, CEO TECANGOL and Seth Brown, CEO Adacel in the presence of representatives from ENANA, the Angolan National Airport and Air Navigation Service Provider, as well as other senior government officials. The signing event took place at the Quebec Regional Office - Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada in Montreal in conjunction with Angola’s Business Mission to Canada. 

Adacel’s ATC simulation systems have proven to be very effective in developing higher proficiency and accelerating the learning process of controllers during their course of study and ongoing training. The simulators are designed to provide ATC students with realistic hands-on practice that reinforces learning from the basics of phraseology and communications through the advanced skills required to be a competent controller.

“We are excited by this partnership with TECANGOL to bring the best available ATC training technology to Angola” 
Seth Brown, CEO Adacel
