VOLANDIA is the biggest Italian Museum of Aeronautics. Its location close to the international Malpensa airport allows thousands of visitors to admire modern and historic aircrafts, onboard equipment and materials. The Museum is hosted in the buildings once owned by the Caproni aircraft factory, that was one of the excellence companies in this field. Visitors have the unique opportunity of visiting a museum that also explains how historic airplanes were designed and assembled in the early decades of the past century. Modern aircrafts are also shown, from the Second World War to recent times.
VOLANDIA is complete in its presentation of aeronautics to visitors, but it was missing of information about air traffic control.
SITTI has recently completed the shipment and installation of a tower console, so as to give visitors the perception of what happens when they depart or land in any airport in the world. Explanatory panels describe what a Voice Communication System (VCS) is and how it may influence their journey. The tower console hosts a true Controller Working Position (CWP) which reproduces real conversations among pilots and the tower.
Enjoy your visit.
