IFATC at Home

IFATC members may choose which airports to open only in the country they represent. ATC is encouraged to open their home airports, though they may open any airport they’d like in their country.

NOTAM // IFATC at Home Topic Rules

Individual IFATC at Home topics are no longer allowed.

On Wednesday, March 24th, a wiki IFATC at Home topic will be posted with a specific airport format for IFATC members to follow. Controllers wishing to post the airport they intend to open along with field information may do so in a comment. A TL3, Moderator, or Staff member will then insert that information into the main topic body.

This centrally located IFATC at Home topic will serve as a HUB for pilots to review all airports intended to be staffed while also reducing forum clutter. Thanks for your participation!

How do I get IFATC at my event?

At least one published event from the #live:events category will be featured each month on the IFATC schedule. Direct message requests are not accepted. Events chosen are based on organization, engagement, airport capacity for the event type, and creativity. For more, you can check out the IFATC Event Policy here!

What is a "check ride"?

Each IFATC member enters a check ride phase upon promotion to the ATC Specialist & Officer rank which gives access to Class Bravo airports or radar frequencies… This phase evaluates their ability to handle complex airports, increased traffic volume, and standard Expert Server conditions. The * on the ATC Schedule denotes airports that shouldn’t be opened by newly promoted ATC Specialists or Officers.

How can I appeal my Level 2 or 3 Violation?

If reported by ATC on the Expert Server for an infraction you will be issued a Level 2 or Level 3 Violation. This may be appealed here on the Community Forum by sending a direct message to @appeals where you should provide your callsign, display name, location, details surrounding the report, and a replay file which can easily be uploaded here!
