In addition, the analysis covered the various requirements by ICAO PANS-ATM and included analyses of the line-of-sight, the floor space and the controller working positions and the CNS / ATM Equipment.
On behalf of the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), airsight – together with Aviation Solutions – analysed the impact of a new 100m high control tower building with respect to safety and operational aspects. A special focus was set on the construction phase of the building (e.g. effect of cranes).
