Soon the days on non radar control will be history in Piarco. They already started work on their new control tower which is "supposed" to be fitted with new radar equipment etc.

I have looked at the pictures and it looks very good! Congratulations to that airspace to advance to radar.

Thanks for the link,
I looked at some nice mobile tower pictures and more. :D

was down there in April and they still waiting......

CTR may be going online soon (ish). APP though from what i hearing is remaining with TWR and still remain procedural. The new tower is finished, they just not using it yet! That is hopefully gonna change also in the near future also.....

Piarco ATC School (good times there!) are running a TWR course only now for Trinis to get them up and then rated to work the TWR, then APP can be separate and go radar.

Miss my days down working and training there......

Didn't really want to start a new topic, but I just came across this video here;

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWtxlMHFwzU" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWtxlMHFwzU</a>

You can see the new control tower, with radar screens fully functional being used (for reference at the very least, as for separation I am not too sure if they are using the radar for that purpose yet) - You can also see the Area Control facility has radar as well, very cool.  8)
