Departure Control Tutorial

The Departure Control Frequency is one of the most important frequencies to ensure aircraft are separated immediately after departure. With multiple aircraft flying runway heading right off departure end, it’s your job to deconflict each aircraft and get them where they need to go!

In this tutorial I’ll show you how to develop a plan for multiple departures as you assign their initial heading and altitude before handing off to center to begin the enroute phase of their journey.

  • Aircraft should fly runway heading until further advised when Departure is available.
  • Departure will give the initial heading and altitude to the requested destination.
  • Once deconflicted with other aircraft, issue frequency change to Center or destination.
