HungaroControl on Monday said it will open an elite air traffic control academy in Budapest. The academy, dubbed Entry Point Central, will launch in September. Sixteen Hungarian students will be in the first class.
Instruction at the academy will be based on the programmes and methods of the Scandinavian air traffic control academy, Entry Point North, with which HungaroControl has established a joint venture. English will be the language of instruction at Entry Point Central.
In May, HungaroControl inaugurated Central Europe's first air traffic control simulation centre in Budapest. The centre, dubbed Center of Research, Development and Simulation (CRDS), is only the second of its kind in all of Europe after one in Paris.
