Welcome to our official Plane and Pilot Pattern Event! This weekend, our controllers will be faced with their toughest session yet! Our team will head to New Zealand and fly at New Zealand’s trickiest airport yet! The mountains around Queens town makes the airport approach unbearably complicated. Pilots will have to overcome this obstacle and have fun with this tricky approach! Come join us as we navigate our way around the mountains! Do you have what it takes to fly this tricky approach?

ATC: You must be a member of Plane & Pilot ATC in order to control at this event.

Do you want to join!! Heres a little about us and what you experience when you join!

Plane & Pilot ATC is one of the only ATC groups that controls at IFC events! Our team controls at all of our TS1 events in both our Primary and Patterns series. We will also provide ATC to almost any TS1 event, all you have to do is apply for a sponsorship (more info above).
We make sure that each of our members is highly knowledgeable and skilled in different types of operations so that they can help make our events run smoothly, and offer full training in both tower/ground and approach/departure fields so that our members can be fully prepared for IFATC training and tests.

Our ATC team is divided up into ranks to ensure quality ATC and training services. If you are an active member and good controller, you will move up in the ranks! Here are the requirements and privileges of each.

Trainee: This is the rank that you are given when you have passed our written test and joined our team. Trainees are allowed to control at Plane & Pilot Pattern events and can request tower/ground training sessions.

Intermediate: Intermediates have controlled at least 1 pattern event and one training/evaluation session with few errors. They are allowed to control at both Pattern and Primary Events, as well as request both approach/departure and tower/ground training sessions.

Senior: Seniors have controlled tower/ground at several events, and have completed at least one approach/departure training session with few errors. They are allowed to provide tower/ground and approach/departure to all TS1 events. Additionally, they are allowed to give feedback to Trainee and Intermediate ranks.

Specialist: Specialists have pasted both IFATC ground/tower tests and are an IFATC controller. They have the ability to give ground/tower training and evaluation sessions. They can also request radar training sessions from officers.

Officer: Officers have passed IFATC radar tests. They have the ability to give both ground/tower and approach/departure evaluations.

Note: When you tap their name, it will take you to their slack profile!
