About HungaroControl

HungaroControl, Hungarian Air Navigation Services Pte. Ltd. Co., is a state owned company operating a state-of-the-art air traffic control centre in Budapest. Air traffic in Hungary has grown by 40 per cent in the past 10 years and HungaroControls air traffic controllers handle around 600 thousand flights a year. HungaroControl therefore launched several development initiatives in recent years with the aim to ensure the safe and efficient handling of continuously increasing air traffic, and promote the on-going European ATM integration in the spirit of the Single European Sky program.
In addition to enhancing its air traffic control services, one of HungaroControls objectives is to promote regional cooperation e.g. in air navigation training and R&D, in cooperation with its partners.

The establishment of Entry Point Central is based on the increasing demand for high quality and cost efficient training in support of air navigation, generated partly by European integration and the creation of functional airspace blocks. HungaroControls aim with the creation of the training center is to enable FAB CE, formed by seven Central European countries, to become one of the most renowned functional airspace blocks providing efficient services in Europe and operating at the highest technical technological level.
