The landmark control tower at Brussels Airport inspires, attracts, fascinates… everyone wants to climb it to admire the stunning view of the airport and the aerial ballet that makes us dream of holidays and exotic destinations. But above everything else the control tower is the centre of airport safety operations. Join us on a guided tour.
Aviation has always held a fascination for most of us. As a passenger, we know more or less about the visible part of the iceberg – the airports, pilots, aircraft, even the control tower – but few of us have ever seen the part below the water surface: the air traffic control centre, CANAC 2.
Today is World Meteorological Day! This is the opportunity to thank all our colleagues of the meteo service.
Since 3 years, military air traffic controllers have been permanently installed alongside their skeyes colleagues and work in the same operational room.
We would like to thank all ATSEP - Air Traffic Safety Engineering Professionals - for all their dedicated efforts to keep the systems up and running safely.
Today is the International Day of the Air Traffic Controller and that's why we put our air traffic controllers in the spotlight!

The summer of 2021 is drawing to a close and although the current September month feels like an Indian summer, which is usually accompanied by sun, good weather, vacation, swimming pools, terraces and barbecues with friends, the past months have left a bitter taste to many people and even led to real disasters. Overcast skies, torrential rains, autumnal temperatures and lack of light definitely turned what started off as a beautiful summer into an outright grim season. But was that really the case? Was this summer so extraordinary? What is the potential impact of such conditions on aviation? Wim Bladt, weather expert at skeyes, explains.
