Radar simulation of Sri Lankan airspace

Came across this link to a simulated “Radar view” of Sri Lankan air traffic from the Air Traffic Control Sri Lanka website. The simulation requires a flash plug-in and the Air Traffic Control Sri Lanka requires javascript. Not sure if the simulation is real time. There’s some sort of audio – very stat-icky (sounds like the air traffic control talk). My sound card isn’t the best for this sort of thing.

Also check out Air Traffic Control Sri Lanka’s inside pics of the “Katunayaka” Radar control room. The pics look old but this being Sri Lanka I wonder if much has changed ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. ๐Ÿ˜ณ Thank you for spotting the typo. Very careless of me – specially since spell check doesn’t apply to heading.. I’m also hoping that stuff that’s on the simulation is canned stuff and not live. But I’m not expert on these things (as you can see ๐Ÿ˜‰ The Flight Tracker widget in Mac OSX seems to do something similar using publicly available info. Maybe the flash movie uses something similar or its totally made up (I hope).

    Flight tracking seems to be quite public.


  2. Its a simulator. This specific flash movie has been used in many exhibitions to demonstrate how a radar view looks. (easy way to check, open the url wait for two minutes and open another window with the same url.) Plus I doubt if the AASL would really host something like this in a free tripod site when they have their own (www.airport.lk)


  3. I can understand your point. I know how shame to hear AASL still finding difficulties with hosting web for their only international airport. May be thats why I develop the web that contains all the flight information of the Sri Lanka airports. URL of the web is http://www.colomboair.itgo.com. Personally saying this is very useful.


  4. Banuthev: Thank you for that link. Quite handy. You ought too start a blog about aviation issues in Sri Lanka ๐Ÿ™‚ After all you got a head start on the subject than most people.
