IFATC Education Group - Never stop learning


What is the IFATC Education Group?

The IFATC Education Group is a group of IFATC that educates Infinite Flight air traffic controllers and pilots about controlling and flying. We make short and easily digestible notes posted once every morning, covering one subject relating to either flying or controlling on Infinite Flight.

Learn something every day, never stop learning.

A new Infinite Flight teaser, one of many we’ve received this recently, shows a close up of the terminals at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (LFPG).


Very cool project with lots of interesting articles! Big thanks to everyone involved!

Thanks! Going on 3 years now I believe.

That’s really impressive!

Started in December 2017 as the ATC Event Group, we organized ATC events. Then we moved away from events and changed our name to the ATC Education Group (thank the lord Education starts with an “E”). We worked with ATC trainees to help get them pilots for their non-official training sessions. Then we stopped helping with training in 2019 and on February 22, 2019 we started our blog. In April of 2020 we partnered with the IFATC and did a full rebranding as the IFATC Education Group.

728 posts sent out, one a day, every day (with a few days missing), since February 2019 and here we are. Now you’re all caught if anyone is new to our group. :)


Very cool and interesting, thank you! :)

Ah that’s brilliant, I was RedCap 229 in an A320 just in front of them! I had to speed up to stay ahead…

They were freakin me out, when I saw the giant line up I thought they were going to surround me and I’d be assimilated into the Indonesian VA 😳

I got in to Singapore before them, and I remember it as a good smooth approach and nice ATC support!

Awesome, good to hear!

Approach Briefings really are important to finish a flight in a good manner and to be prepared for the eventualities that tend to occur from time to time. Definitely a good hint!
