Air Traffic Control Room
Following delivery of a feasibility study, Tex Special Projects designed, manufactured and installed the
innovative flying control room (FLYCO) on the Royal Navy Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers.

Our Maxi-View Tempest glazing and wiper technology defy the most extreme conditions and offer unparalleled visibility for confident, split-second decision making. Environments can be optimised through our heated Maxi-View glass that can adopt attributes such as Electromagnetic Shielding, NBC compliance, Impact resistance and up to BR7 capabilities with optical clarity.
