FAA To Install Adacel ATC Tower Simulator At PHX

Sky Harbor Airport Tower Sim Will Be 15th Purchased By FAA

Software integration and simulation technology developer Adacel told ANN Monday the company has received an order to deliver an additional MaxSim air traffic control Tower Simulator System (TSS) to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Under terms of the new agreement Adacel will provide a MaxSim TSS, two additional databases, and one on-site Subject Matter Expert (SME) at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, AZ.

"We are thrilled to announce this latest order from the FAA. The confidence the FAA continues to have in Adacel's training and simulation solutions is indeed one of the highest compliments we could receive," said Acadel CEO Fred Sheldon. "Adacel is proud to provide the world's finest ATC simulation tools that offer essential and comprehensive training and development solutions. It confirms that Adacel continues to be the simulator of choice by air traffic controllers."

This latest procurement will enhance the FAA's operational air traffic control tower simulation training program in Phoenix. The FAA already utilizes 14 Adacel Tower Simulation Systems; 10 located at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (FAA Academy) in support of the Tower Cab training program, one located at the William J. Hughes Technical Center (FAA Tech Center) for airport analysis and development, and three more at operational control facilities in Chicago, Miami and Ontario, CA.

Over the last four years, Adacel has earned key civil and military contracts.

The company supplies ATC tower simulation systems for the United States Air Force, United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, and the Federal Aviation Administration, Civil Aviation Authorities in Europe and the Middle East, as well as many of the most prestigious aviation universities in the world.

The Adacel MaxSim simulator products represent the benchmark air traffic control training suite. US military and commercial aviation authorities, as well as over thirty air traffic management services around the world have selected them.

MaxSim Tower and MaxSim Radar meet the pressing training requirements of the ATC community. Capable of integrated tower and radar operations, they have the flexibility to be operated in standalone configurations, or in multiple integrated configurations.
