APRONAUT Docking Simulator

The innovative solution to ensure safe and successful Passenger Boarding Bridge Docking each and every time

APRONAUT is the world’s first software-based Passenger Boarding Bridge docking simulator. It is designed for safe and comprehensive real-time training of new and experienced PBB operators and covers multiple docking situations. The solution allows operators-in-training to become confident and familiar with the apron environment, the docking and undocking of aircrafts and the necessary PBB operations protocol. Its rich multimedia and interactive experience provides a virtual environment where an individual can make mistakes without consequences. ADELTE’s patented simulator is custom made to conform to the specific airport where it is used, including the taxiway configuration, and for all types of aircraft in operation.
