Precommissioning of the automatic direction finder DF2000 has been completed at Khabiny airport (the town of Apatity) of the Murmansk region.
Khibiny airport is located in the administrative district of Apatity. Just 32 km from the airport is the town of Kirovsk. Geographically, the airport occupies a very important position: it is located in the heart of the Kola Peninsula.
The automatic direction finder DF2000, produced by Azimut JSC and installed at Khibiny airport, provides for accurate aircraft direction-finding within the sectors where controlled flight routes run in the terminal area, which allows the controller to determine aircraft movement direction.
All the works on commissioning the air navigation equipment have been done in the interests of FSUE «State ATM Corporation». As part of the contract, specialists of Azimut JSC carried out installation, starting-up and adjustment works, as well as the briefing of operating personnel, and performed ground tests and introductory flight checks.
