Jiande Aviation Town: Design Excellence and Innovation in Training

Posted: 12 December 2023

The VV team travelled to Jiande in Zhejiang province to meet with aviation training technologists at the Jiande Aviation Town. Situated there the Airport Training Base (ATB) shown below contains a unique architecturally designed facility, in which general training for all aspects of aerodrome activity including logistics, security, and ATC is delivered. The ATC training focus is on smaller airports with simulation available for Tower and Procedural Approach. This range of capability is not widely available in China, making the ATB a vital part of the development of general aviation in the country.

It was a pleasure to meet Dean Liu Wei (pictured below with Visual Vectoring Managing Director Michael Rowland), and ATC subject matter expert Mr Tong Xuezi. We will be looking to work together with the experts at ATB to explore the utility of our ATC and language training products within their curricula.
