The entire DHMI community strives with mobilization awareness and spirit in order to avoid any problems at the grand opening on 29 October. All of our units, acting with this understanding, carry out the necessary works in coordination with İGA and other stakeholders.
Education is a field that we place a lot of importance on before the grand opening. I would like to summarize the activities for IGA employees at the New Airport under the umbrella of DHMI and my valuable followers:
Activities, training and tests for the completion of air navigation services, operation, construction, information technologies and electronic infrastructure have been meticulously completed on the basis of 7 / 24 and some trainings are continuing.
In this context; ILS, radar, VOR trainings of the personnel who will pass from AHL to this airport have been completed. Newly appointed personnel will also be trained on Air traffic safety electronic personnel (ATSEP).
125 additional controllers were trained in the basic ATC courses held in Istanbul, and the number of Istanbul controllers was increased to 335, and our staff who will provide air traffic control service at the new airport successfully completed their real-time simulations at the eurocontrol bretigny experiment center.
We have completed our preparations with tower and approach control works with atcTRsim simulators developed with our facilities. Following the 70 at the opening, our 80 and our 1600 flight per day are ready to be ready for duty.
