IFATC Practical Test Tips

Hello all!
Today I passed the IFATC written test. Me and my recruiter are planning a date for the practical test this week. I have watched all of Tyler’s videos(including ‘the perfect atc test’) many times. Apart from the videos, does anyone have any tips for the practical test?

Maybe make a tracking thread if you haven’t already?

Experienced controllers will judge you and help you prepare for the practical. Good luck!

I suggest to remain calm while doing the practical test. If you remain calm during your practical, you will avoid doing mistakes. Just treat it like an ordinary controlling session ;)

Best of luck and see you at IFATC!

Have you contacted a trainer? I highly suggest you contact a trainer, and do some training sessions.

No. You need to contact a trainer separately. Let me get you thread.

Alright thanks very much

What’s so cool?

I am also applying for ATC.
So…Any tips for me?

Just relax & treat it as just another training. Don’t add more pressure to yourself.

As I mentioned a few days back to @Rian_OShea, make sure to get yourself a trainer. They will guide you through everything you need to know for the practical. Relax, and you’ll be fine.

My absolute number 1 tip however, is to NOT RUSH. I know that it is exciting, however if you rush, and don’t revise properly, you will fail.

Good luck!

Hey everyone! I just wanted to thank everyone for the advice. I passed my practical last Saturday evening. So happy to be aboard, and @Sandipan_Kundu1, keep trying if you don’t pass, it’s definitely worth it!

Congratulations @Rian_OShea
I just gave the written test, looks like I definitely need some more learning. xD
Meanwhile,I will improve my flying.
