Interest continues in Micro Nav’s Airside Driver Trainer
Micro Nav recently attended the UK CAA CAP 790 ‘Airside Driving and Vehicle Operation’ Industry Briefing day along with AirDAT. The CAP790 consultation paper released earlier this year looks at improving vehicle operational safety in the airside environment by focussing on key areas for improvements including communications, English language proficiencies and competency-based driver training, with special focus on ‘advanced’ drivers (those on the manoeuvring and runway surfaces).
Since the release of the CAP790 consultation document, enquiries about Micro Nav’s Airside Driver Trainer (ADT) have continued to be strong. The ADT is Micro Nav’s latest simulation product aimed at providing a safe and realistic training environment for airport drivers that also incorporates radio-telephony (RTF) simulation.
‘Awareness of airside safety, in particular the need for competency based training for airside drivers, has been heightened over the past few years due to the increase of runway vehicle incursions in the UK’ says Jeremy Goodman, New Product Development Manager at Micro Nav.
He continues: ‘Real-time simulation provides a safe environment for training which we have seen is well established in other areas of the aviation industry. The ADT has the same benefits including much needed competency-based training in poor weather conditions, covering high-risk driving situations that are not easily replicated on-the-job and objective measurement and record-keeping of training and performance of driving and radio operation airside.’
