Air traffic controllers use simulators as part of both their basic and continuation training. The simulation equipment we use corresponds as far as possible to the actual systems being used. Thanks to simulation, new procedures can be used for instruction before their introduction and the most diverse traffic scenarios can be reproduced for training purposes.
The skyguide training center in our air navigation service center in Dübendorf operates a large, state-of-the-art simulation system. A room covering an area of around 950 m2 houses numerous radar and tower simulators. A second simulation center is deployed in Geneva.

Workstations in the control tower and area control centers are replicated as exactly as possible in simulators: see "Equipment description" in PDF format.
