HungaroControl on Tuesday opened Central Europe's first air traffic control simulation centre in Budapest.
The centre is only the second of its kind in all of Europe.
HungaroControl CEO Kornel Szepessy declined to reveal the exact cost of the investment when asked by MTI, but he said the equipment was worth about €1 million at list price.
Szepessy said the centre would support the "Functional Airspace Block - Central Europe" (FAB CE), established under an agreement signed last Thursday by Hungary, together with Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia and Slovenia.
The FAB CE is a step toward creating the Single European Sky.
State secretary for transportation Pal Volner also noted the importance of the centre from the point of view of achieving the Single European Sky.
