Returning IFATC Members

Returning IFATC members may apply in the same manner by submitting an application on the IFATC site. Please indicate in the application notes that you’re a prior member and any relevant information such as rank or experience.

Members that are removed due to inactivity must wait at least 30 days from their removal date prior to reapplying.

Out of respect for ATC Recruiter time, staff may deny an application to return if previous membership resulted in low activity, a short tenure, or a voluntary exit.

Members removed for inactivity twice will be permanently ineligible to rejoin.

How do I join?

  • Ensure you meet ALL of the requirements above
  • Review the recruiting process HERE as well as the ATC manual HERE
  • Fill out an application at if-atc.com/application
  • Your application will be reviewed and accepted by a Recruiter
  • A Recruiter will contact you via PM on the IFC within 3-5 days
  • If qualified, the candidate will be sent a link that may be used once to complete the timed Knowledge Exam, a 25 question test that will evaluate the candidate’s knowledge of basic ATC procedures and commands
  • With a passing score of 80% on the written exam, the recruiter will schedule a Practical Exam to evaluate the candidate’s ability to efficiently control an airfield with 5-8 aircraft

What will I be tested on in the Practical Test?

The IFATC Practical Test consists of a ~30 minute session which evaluates the recruits ability to successfully manage 5-8 departures, arrivals, and pattern work aircraft with parallel or intersecting runways while successfully employing the following skills:


The Perfect ATC Test


How can I prepare for the Practical Test?
