I don’t usually blog about my work but in some instances work does brings me to cool places. One of it is a control tower in an airport. I was at the tower of Malaysia’s busiest airport with my division colleagues to learn about some matters on air traffic.
As it was a working visit, it was pretty much discussion and taking notes hence very little time to take photos despite having my DSLr with me. Nevertheless enjoy some of the nice views:
The tower stood tall at 130-metre (425ft) being one of the tallest air traffic control tower in the world.
Offering the best unobstructed views of the airport surrounding.

Inside the tower, it is 24×7 serious business. Professionalism at its best.
Real-time technology provides enhancement to existing tools being used by ATC
I was amazed by the capabilities of the controllers. Not only they are all friendly they are also superb at multi-tasking skills, mathematical and probabilistic reasoning skills, excellent short and long term memory, and above-average spatial skills.
In the end, it’s just another day at work.
Although these posters provide continuous reminders on how serious the job is.
I feel safer knowing that the traffic management for flights in Malaysia are in safe hands 🙂
One for the album.
