ATC Question

Hey IFC!
So I’ve been reading through the IFATC manual and I have discovered something discussed but not explained in the manual. It talks about when you are controlling as ATC, you should work with the other controllers and radar to effectively control.
My question is, how do you communicate with other controls while controlling yourself as I’ve never seen a button which enables you to to do.
Thanks a lot for all the help!

Hello, I think the manual is referring to the messaging app slack which IFATC controllers use to communicate. IFATC controllers use this to coordinate runway crossings, when controllers are opening and closing airports, etc. Hope this helps.


Use Slack channels, private messaging, text messaging, phone calls, anything to communicate. Its not an in app thing


Oh ok that makes sense now, thanks for the help!
