In a recent email to Copperchase regarding another project in-hand, Tim Maskens, Senior Air Traffic Controller (SATCO) at Lydd commented; “By the way, the MEP STP990 VCCS is just about to go live, with the CAA Art 205 Approval inspection due on 11 June… I must say we are very impressed with it!” – Thanks Tim, you’ve chosen the best of breed in the TCS990 and its CWP options.
