Air Traffic Control Simulation Lab

The Air Traffic Control Simulation Lab in the Aviation Center offers real-time simulation of controlled airspace management, and is divided into two areas: radar control simulation and tower control simulation.

The radar control simulators replicate an FAA terminal radar approach control facility (TRACON) and have the capability of replicating an air route traffic control center for en-route radar control. Students will be able to control simulated air traffic using similar equipment terminals that are used in the industry. Students use computer and instructor-generated scenarios that range from basic to challenging situations. The radar simulation also features voice recognition/response software so that students interact using native language to give instructions to and receive request/responses from computer-simulated traffic.

The Tower Control simulator uses similar scenarios to expose students to the functions of a tower controller. Using a 135-degree view screen, the tower simulator allows you to control traffic visually both in the air and on the ground.

The Daniel Webster College ATC simulation lab is part of the certified FAA CTI Program. Daniel Webster College is one of only 36 colleges that offer this program to students. A graduate of the FAA CTI program may be eligible to bypass the first five weeks of qualification training at the FAA Academy in Oklahoma City, if he or she is hired as an Air Traffic Control Specialist.
