LONDON, July 25, 2012 /CNW/ - The growth of air traffic in developing
regions, along with an ageing population of controllers in North
America and Europe, is creating new competition for resources. New
simulator technologies and greater consolidation of training centres
can help to bring down controller training costs dramatically,
according to this report.
The 4th ATC Global Insight Market Intelligence Report is now available
online free of charge at http://www.atcglobalhub.com/marketreports* and reviews the market from both a high-end level and a bottom up
approach, looking at state by state training system applications.
The global air traffic control (ATC) controller training market for new
entrant controllers is worth annually around $437.5 million, according
to the latest report produced by ATC Global Insight, with follow-on
training and new equipment training probably adding a further $150
million to the overall market value.
Annual sales of ATC simulators - outside longstanding FAA contractual
arrangements - are running at between $30-$35 million a year, according
to the report. There has been a marked slow-down in simulator sales
within Europe over the last 18 months or so and the market in the
Middle East, Latin America and Asia is relatively buoyant. The market
in Africa is still largely dictated by the availability of development
funding, with the exception of South Africa.
Paula Milburn, ATC Global Director, said, "At ATC Global we focus on
delivering valuable research for the industry throughout the year and
this report raises issues that need to be addressed when we bring
everyone together in Amsterdam, March 12 - 14, 2013. Improving
controller training is a key priority for the industry and the 2013
event will feature important new training technologies now becoming
available to the global ATM community."
This report is sponsored by Micro Nav Ltd, a leading developer and supplier of ATC simulation and training
systems; the digital KVM specialist Guntermann & Drunck and UFA, a principal supplier of ATC simulation technology.
The next report in the series will be En-route surveillance radars.
