We provide Air Traffic Control (ATC) services at
13 UK airports. At Heathrow Airport we provide
we provide tower and engineering services.
This is an ATC service provided for the airport
and surrounding airspace. The controllers will
look out of the tower windows, as well as at the
ATC equipment, to give aircraft clearance to taxi,
take-off and land.
An engineering team, based at the airport, are
responsible for maintaining air traffic control
services, such as radar and the Instrument
Landing System (ILS).
