IFATS offers a comprehensive training service to our users, specifically, our controllers.
Our Training is detailed and choreographed to ensure that attention to detail and optimum retention of information is achieved by each individual.

Controller Training

Here at IFATS, Our Controller Ranking System is as follows:
  • ATCS Air Traffic Controller Student
  • FISO Flight Information Service Officer
  • ATCO Air Traffic Controller Officer
  • CPC Certified Professional Controller
  • ATCI Air Traffic Control Instructor
  • HATC Head of Air Traffic Control

Candidates will begin with the ATCS rank, where they will learn the foundations of Air Traffic Management working from the ground upwards.

Once a FISO, they will learn how upper airspace radar works and learn the fundamentals of radar vectoring and high altitude airspace operations.

Each rank has a series of endorsements and hour blocks that a student must complete in order to progress to the next rank available.

A controller is considered certified once he/she:

  • Has received all related endorsements from the previous ranks (FISO and ATCS)
  • Has completed the required hours associated with achieving the ATCO rank.
  • Has completed an Assessment of Previous Competence (APC)

ATCO’s will then have the option to continue training or stay as a general controller for

Pilot Training

Introducing YouTube Livestreaming!

Hello everyone! Today Infinite Flight Air Traffic Service added a new promotional feature. We will be Livestreaming some of our ATC sessions on YouTube. We have gotten custom overlays and images to display on our stream. Our first public livestream will be held today (4/8/2018) at 1700Z. To watch it head over to this link: Infinite Flight Air Traffic Service - YouTube We hope to see as many of you there!


We’ve just gone live! Check it out here [VOCAL ATC] KDEN Session @IFATS - YouTube

Will it be on YouTube after?

I was listening in on YouTube and I have my volume maxed out but I still couldn’t understand them. I could understand a couple of pilots but I definitely couldn’t understand the controller. I would love to do this since I will be a pilot within the next 5 years. All I’m asking is to please speak up guys.

I had a hard time hearing things even with my volume all the way up. I would fix that next time.

We understand there were some audio problems towards the beginning. 30 ish mins in it improved on my end. The audio will be improved next time around we are still learning. Thanks to those who watched tonight. We got a total of 108 views and 21 new subscribers. We will be sure to let you know when our next livestream is.


I’d also recommend getting a place where you won’t get interrupted by background noise a lot like a closed bedroom or a basement. I listened in briefly and was more focused on background noises then the actual stream. Just a tip.


That was the start of the stream, we had an audio issue for the first little while but it was fixed within a half hour. Sorry about that, we are still new to livestreaming and all those small issues will be resolved for next time round!

Great job! I have a quick question however. Are some of the controllers or instructors certified as actual on duty controller

Our chief Instructor is a PPL holder here in Ireland. One of our other instructors is almost finished his training to become an air traffic controller in the USA and many of our pilots are PPL holders.

So does IFATS have two divisions for FAA procedures and EU procedures? Or do you just use one main set of procedures all over the world?

Our controllers are trained in both FAA and EU procedures to apply them when needed. They dont learn both straight away due to the way our training program is set up but before they reach ATCO they’ll be after learning both.
