Open an ATC tracking thread with this information
but before you do that, start ATC controlling on TS in smaller airports such as EGCC, EIDW, KEWR, etc.
then move on to major airports in the middle of the day when it’s not at the peak hour. When you feel you’re experienced enough, start controlling EGLL, KLAX etc. but just a warning: it’s a very high workload, especially on the TS where hardly anyone listens to your instructions. Start watching Tyler’s ATC tutorial videos here
make sure to navigate to that channel and watch all the videos.
When you think you’re up for it, go to this page where you can contact a recruiter and schedule an IFATC written exam. For this exam I recommend you to utilize a pen and paper for drawing out situations. Before taking this exam, make sure you know this atc manual and learn the tower and ground part off by heart. Upon passing the written, you should contact a trainer here so he can schedule a few sessions to prepare you for your practical exam.
Personally, I’m about to take the practical exam later on this week, so I hope to see you aboard IFATC soon!
And as always, EVERYONE needs motivation. Here’s a really good motivational video on YT.
I wish you all the best of luck, and hope to see you working alongside me in the future in IFATC!
