IFATC at Home • 30 Jan 2021

IFATC Schedule

ATC at Home has become a highly popular day on the Expert schedule for both controllers and pilots alike. This is an opportunity for IFATC members to open their home airport in the country or region that is considered home for them.

In an effort to consolidate multiple topics we are introducing a WIKI to allow a summary of what will be open and when.

Step 1 - IFATC should comment with the following template:

- Airport Name
- Airport ICAO
- Date and Time open
- Special notes

Step 2 - Regulars (TL3), Moderators, or Staff will relocate the comment in the correct format to the airport list below under the appropriate continent. The airport should be listed using the hide detail drop down feature.

Step 3 - Check back on Saturday, January 30, to check out the available airports and get real-time updates in the comments as controllers announce their intent to open!
