1. A leader in airport design

We ensure that the sky remains the safest place to be

In daily contact with the French Civil Aviation controllers at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, ADPI's air navigation division puts its expertise at the service of its clients, to ensure the highest safety standards at all times while also respecting best practices and international standards.

Thanks to their operational expertise, ADPI's engineers are able to organize the air traffic control system and airspace as well as optimize traffic management at the airport.  Starting with the master plan, they define the best location for the control tower and determine its height then the number, functions and orientation of the control positions in the tower cab(s). They then proceed to divide the airport into areas of responsibility, with an allocation of control tasks to each position.

Thanks to their technical expertise, ADPI engineers provide controllers with all means necessary to ensure the efficiency and reliability of the air traffic control services at the airport: radio, radar, data display system, flight plans, navigation aids, etc.

Forming part of a global approach, the complementary nature of their skills and the relevance of the solutions that they recommend are one of ADPI's major competitive strengths.
