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
IFATS.

Pilot Training

IFATS also offers a Communicate With Confidence or CWC Course to users who struggle to master Radio Telephony and Air Traffic Procedures. The course is ran by the instructors and the participants can follow along the course using our detailed CWC Powerpoint Presentation as a guide. The course covers a range of subjects including but not limited to:
  • The Phonetic Alphabet
  • Basic Telephony Phrases
  • Frequency Operations and Communications
  • Flight Plan Formatting and Filing
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Emergency Procedures

You guys only controll on expert or you do on traing as well?

No sir, as mentioned in our post we ONLY control on the casual server to avoid conflict with in game ATC.

Oh sorry, I skipped that part.
But didn’t know you could controll on casual:)

Its vocal ATC, everything is done via discord. Our procedures are not similar to what Infinite Flight currently offers as they arent the most realistic. We have studied real world procedures and replicated it for our pilots to enjoy a realistic flight.

Wait what!? I don’t get it, but sounds awsome:)

We basically provide ATC but vocally, our pilots file their flight in our discord server when one of our controllers opens ATC. The pilot then connects to the voice channel where the vocal ATC takes place. On the pilots phone they also connect to Infinite Flight on the casual server and as the flight they filed on discord.

I think this is a very cool idea but I was wondering if I can learn more about ATC? Because I checked out the test that we have to pass and I didn’t know many things.

Don’t worry. If you don’t know it you can take part in our communicating with confidence class. This program will help you to understand everything you need to know to be a good airman on our frequencies. Take the test and follow the rest of the steps. We’ll help you from there.

Cool! So if I don’t pass you will basically help me with the rest? :)

I downloaded the discord app but it keeps crashing on my phone so I’ll download it on my ipad later but, is it possible for me to play IF on my ipad ant talk on discord at the same time?

@oscar_mur I haven’t heard from you in my PM regarding joining IFATS for a while. A reply would be much appreciated,

Thanks.

This sounds very difficult and awesome. Just saw a vid from you guys on YT, what do you expect from us? Are the basics enough (i.e. the normal ATC in IF on TS or ES)? Or do you really have to be professional like real life?
