Visit to Myanmar

Posted: 11 August 2014

The Visual Vectoring team has visited Myanmar to induct a group of ATC instructors into the use of the VV Approach training program. We were made to feel very welcome by the Director General, Mr Win Swe Tun and by the Director (Air Navigation Safety), Mr Tike Aung (pictured below).

The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) Myanmar will introduce Surveillance Approach services to Yangon, and is planning to use VV Approach as a bridging course for experienced procedural Approach controllers. In addition to discussing this process, the VV team and DCA specialists exchanged ideas on ATC training techniques and safety training.

A highlight of our time in Yangon was a tour of the DCA academy, ATC Centre and Tower.
