When your aircraft has arrived at the runway threshold, it is taken charge of by an ‘air’ traffic controller in the control tower. He gives the green light for the aircraft to take off and guides it up to an altitude of 4,500 feet (about 1,400 metres).
skeyes adapts to a new reality: the integration of drones in air traffic. The company has launched the droneguide application that enables drone pilots to fly safely.
Control of the aircraft is then passed on to the ‘approach’ air traffic controller (APP) in the CANAC 2 control centre whose job consists of guiding aircraft up to their air corridor and who makes sure that the minimum separation distance from other aircraft is complied with.
