On the 3rd of February 2017 second-year air traffic control students from the Department of aeronautics visited the Zagreb air traffic control tower. During the visit they were able to see first hand the environment of aerodrome air traffic controllers and how they work. For students, it was interesting to see the link between the theory and the practical work of air traffic controllers. Aerodrome OJT instructor Stanka Radić explained the students in detail the working equipment of air traffic controllers and how they work during the shift.
For their significant contribution trough last several years to the Development of Aeronautics at the Faculty of Traffic and Transport Sciences, capt. Josip Grgec (Director of Operation at Croatia Airlines) and col. Goran Huljev (commander of the Pilot school at Croatian Air Force) received Charter of Recognition. Ceremony was held in Borongaj campus on 10 October 2016 during the celebration of the Faculty’s Day. We hope that the good cooperation will continue further on, and once more, as a Department give our gratitude to our friends and colleagues.
On October 3rd 2016, a new class of 12 candidates selected by CroControl Ltd (Croatian ANSP) started their ATC basic training at the Croatian Air Traffic Control Training Centre, Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences. The training is being held by employees of the Department of Aeronautics with significant input from the ATC instructors employed by CroControl.
The goal of the course is to teach the candidates basic theory needed for future work and rating training. The basic training covers following topics: Introduction, Air Law, Navigation, Air Traffic Management, Aircraft, Equipment and Systems, Human Factors, Meteorology, Professional Environment, and Aviation English. This generation of candidates is undergoing the training for ATC according to the EU regulation 2015/340.
With the help of the ATC instructors, during the Basic training, the candidates will also gain valuable skills on the BEST radar simulator. For the first time at the Croatian Air Traffic Control Training Centre, candidates will take part in practical simulator training for all three air traffic control units, Aerodrome, Area Control and Approach control.
Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences (Department of Aeronautics) had the privilege to host the summit on Flexible Use of Airspace in Croatia on Wednesday 15 June 2016. The summit was organized by Croatia Control Ltd., with focus on informing all airspace users and other stakeholders in aviation on the subject. As one of the aviation stakeholder, the Department activities were presented by assistant professor Biljana Juričić. Future projects in redesigning the lower airspace was also presented by representatives of CroControl. The fruitful discussion that followed leads to conclusion that the summit aims were achieved in full, and that dialogue between national representatives and airspace users can be maintained and improved in future.
Continuing with good cooperation with the industry, representatives of Croatia Airlines held a meeting with undergraduate students (commercial pilot module) on Wednesday June 8 at the Department of Aeronautics. Meeting was initiated by capt. Josip Grgec, Director of Operations, accompanied by capt. Tomo Hubak (Dash Q400) and f/o Nikica Klasić (A319/320). All of them are alumni of our Faculty. Capt. Grgec explained the need for educated pilots at the company, possibilities for professional development, and relayed his observations on pilot’s market worldwide. Capt. Hubak and f/o Klasić told their stories and personal experience on their journey from graduated aeronautical students to airline pilots. Very interested part of the meeting was capt. Grgec’s explanation of future training plans and possibilities of employment within the company. Students expressed their interest by attending the lecture in large number and by asking a lot of proficient and well structurated questions. We hope that this kind of gathering will continue in the future.
Croatian national airliner Croatia Airlines and Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences of University of Zagreb (Department of Aeronautics) singed annex to previous Agreement on scientific and technical cooperation. Annex will regulate and promote mutual cooperation on Life-Long Learning (LLL) concept that is promulgated on the Department of Aeronautics for commercial pilot education and training. With the help of LLL concept, students and other candidates will be able to continue their training on specific type of commercial aircraft, immediately upon successfully completing education at the Faculty. It is believed that this cooperation will contribute towards development of personal potentials of the candidates in order to allow them to increase their competences and employability at the job market.
The Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences was privileged to host Capt David Moskoff, the Professor of Marine Transportation at the US Merchant Marine Academy, and Mrs. Moskoff on 12th May 2016.
The Professor and Mrs. Moskoff were hosted by the Dean of the Faculty Professor Hrvoje Gold, Assistant Professor Biljana Juričić on behalf of Department of Aeronautics, Professor Kristijan Rogić on behalf of Department of Transport Logistics and Professor Natalija Jolić on behalf of Department of Water Transport.
Assistant Professor Biljana Juričić showed the guests Laboratory for Control of Air Navigation and BEST radar simulator. She explained how the simulator works and gave an insight into the teaching and research life of the Department. She also gave same examples of the skills and techniques the students have to master during their studies, such as navigation techniques, air traffic management skills and techniques, communication radiotelephony skills, etc. Professor David Moskoff and Assistant Professor Biljana Juričić discussed on the simaliraties and differences in the aeronautical and marine fields. They mutualy agreed there are many topics and areas which are similar and therefore meeting points of a further cooperation.
As Professor Moskoff’s teaching and research interests are Bridge Resource Management, Marine Simulation and Experiential Learning, Electronic Navigation, GPS/GNSS, ECDIS, Maritime Security, and Port Safety and Law Enforcement Activities, he expressed a great interest for the research and teaching activities of the Department and for continuation of cooperation.
On 12-13 November 2015, an international conference on air transport, INAIR 2015, was held in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The conference was hosted by the Aviation Academy of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences.
The topic of the 2015 INAIR Conference was finding ways to address the challenges of bringing innovation to the aviation industry without compromising safety and security. Keynote speakers came from the ranks of the most renowned organizations from Europe and USA, such as Miroslav Bartoš (European CANSO CEO Committee Chairman, Slovakia), Thomas Hoff Andersson (Copenhagen Airport, Denmark), Colin Meckiff (Eurocontrol, France), Gert Meijer (Aviation Academy, The Netherlands), John Wensveen (Purdue University, USA), and Henk Hesselink (NLR, The Netherlands).
The Faculty of Transport and Traffic Sciences was represented by four attendees: prof. Doris Novak, Bruno Antulov-Fantulin, Karolina Krajček, and Tomislav Radišić. Mr. Antulov-Fantulin presented his work on the method that can be used to detect controller workload saturation by measuring human-machine interactions, whereas Dr. Radišić presented the methods and best practices for development of the ATC research simulator.
