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.
skeyes' technical services conducted the first test flights at Brussels Airport with a new specialised drone equipped with measurement instruments that skeyes recently acquired.
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!
skeyes organised yesterday, June 30th, a round table on wind turbines with the main actors of the energy and aviation sector.
Teams from skeyes and Cegelec dismantled a satellite antenna in Flobecq. The Flobecq site was originally a military communication site, which was mainly used by the American forces.
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.
In the beginning of 2020, skeyes founded a commercial subsidiary, SkeyDrone. A well-considered choice that underlined skeyes' ambition to continue playing a pioneering role in Europe to enable the safe and efficient integration of drones into airspace. Where are skeyes and SkeyDrone one year later? Which projects have been accomplished and what can we expect in the near future? Peggy Devestel, COO of skeyes, and Hendrik-Jan Van Der Gucht, Managing Director of SkeyDrone explain the plans.
Last week, more than 500 people watched our webinar on air traffic control. Haven't you watched it yet? Check it out here.
The main aviation stakeholders - airports, avionics and aircraft manufacturers, authorities and air navigation service providers have joined forces to facilitate and accelerate the deployment of EFVS (Enhanced Flight Vision System) operations in European regional airports.
Did you know that skeyes manages Belgian air traffic up to an altitude of approximately 7,500m (FL245)? Discover it here!
Mention 'air traffic control' and people spontaneously think of a control tower. Not that we are not proud of our towers - not everyone has a 60m high desk with a panoramic view - but the job of air traffic controller does not always take place in a tower. Read all about it here!
Your journey starts with an intensive 6-month selection procedure. Discover here what awaits you during this period.
Functional Airspace Block Europe Central (FABEC), formed by the air navigation services provider Ana Luxembourg, DFS, DSNA, LVNL, MUAC, skeyes and Skyguide, has won the Research, Innovation and Environment category of the ATM 2020 Awards for its package of environmental programmes.
In the week of November 16, the antenna of the primary radar at Ostend Airport was replaced. Are you curious how this work was done? Pictures often say more than words.
This time of year, a lot of people will be flying to and from their holiday destination. skeyes is one of the many actors who watch over your safety when you are enjoying precious moments away with your family or friends. One of the tools that skeyes uses to offer you a smooth flight are the safety nets.
This morning skeyes briefed the federal parliament on the company's situation and vision on the future.
A few years ago, people were barely aware of them and they were used primarily by the military. Nowadays however, drones are becoming more and more part of our everyday life. Photos, videos, explorations and environmental analyses, deliveries of various goods are all applications that will increase their use in the airspace. skeyes takes the lead to integrate them safely in the existing traffic.
skeyes is committed to the development of sustainable energy and contributes to the strengthening of wind farms in Belgium. The company puts its expertise at disposal so that wind turbines can be installed without interfering with air traffic and most importantly, without jeopardising aviation safety.
While aviation enables us to travel, get away, tour the world, it also has an impact on our environment. Conscious of this impact, skeyes has modified approach procedures in order to enable aircraft to perform “green” landings.
