Visit to the Air Traffic Control Center in Gavà
Before the exams we enjoyed a day off in the Air Traffic Control Centre in Gavà, Barcelona, on a very instructive excursion organized by our president, Carles Munich.
It is worth mentioning that this ATC Centre in Gavà is one of the key points of the Spanish ATC network, and hosts the headquarters of the Eastern Region Air Navigation Directorate. We were glad to be given not the common tour, but a personalized one, which stressed the technical aspects of the center and the work that is developed there, constantly watching and putting in order those marvelous man-made creatures that fly over our heads.
We try to keep in touch with as wide a range of aeronautical engineering fields as possible, and definitely the chance to take a guided look at one of the most advanced Air Traffic Control Centers in Spain is no an insignificant one.
