Fast track Approach Control training


VVApproach™ is an Air Traffic Control trainer for skills development in Terminal Area (TMA) sequencing and traffic management. It is ideal for use at the commencement of a radar (or surveillance) ATC course, or for candidates transferring to Approach from another ATC discipline.

Learning Outcomes

At completion of training, the student is required to efficiently manage a two minute landing sequence to a single runway for one hour. Given that extra spacing in any sequence is cumulative, accomplishing this task necessitates robust skills in projection, strategic planning, and decision making.

This traffic management target matches the world’s highest single runway acceptance rate and is attainable from a baseline of no prior knowledge or skill-set.

Expanding Simulation at Hong Kong CAD with VVApproach

In 2011, Visual Vectoring partnered with Hong Kong CAD to increase access to early simulation. Since then, VVApproach has been in continuous use by ab initio and cross-stream trainees in preparation for further training in the complex and challenging Hong Kong Terminal Area.
