Hi there, here are a few good parallel runway airports for ATC training:

  • LFBO - Toulouse

  • KBOI - Boise

  • KABI - Abilene, Texas


  • KHEF is a pretty good parallel runway airport for GA traffic. It helps with understanding runway sizes for different aircraft

You shouldn’t read anything into that, there are loads. It just means it has a good practice layout.

KFLL, KSMF, EGCC are some good ones in addition to those mentioned above as they are close to other major airports so you should get some traffic.

Edited: some have already been cited ;)

EGLL is tricky on Training Server. The trainee need a place where he can be sure to work in a prefessionnal environnement as possible.

I’ll just add on a few that I used to practice. I used KTEB for interesting runways. For parallel runways I used GCLP. I do hope this helps you on your journey to IFATC. Good luck!
