What are ATC region assignments?
The Infinite Flight ATC (IFATC) team operates globally on the Expert Server using a region assignment program. This program allows all IFATC members to select a region, regardless of physical location, where they may control any airport/frequency for which their rank qualifies. Members will remain in their assigned region for 30 days before being eligible to transfer. Extended assignments allow for more ATC proficiency and familiarity in the assigned region!
How can I join IFATC?
Head to our ATC Recruiting Topic, read all instructions, ensure you meet the requirements, then submit an application to begin!
How does a "Region Tracking Topic" work?
Each assignable region of IFATC has it’s own tracking topic for improved ATC/pilot engagement which offers controllers an additional location to indicate which airports they’re opening in real-time. Controllers may advise when opening and closing by commenting on this topic. Pilots should avoid commenting with excessive ATC requests.
How can I see the current IFATC region staffing?
The number of controllers assigned to each region can be found by visiting if-atc.com/stats. Looking for more ATC in a particular region? Join the effort and become part of the staffing you want to see!
Do I need Staff/Moderator permission to receive IFATC staffing at my event?
No, members of the assigned region are encouraged to comment directly on the published #live:events to express their team’s intent to provide ATC services! Event creators should avoid contacting individual controllers privately for service, instead publishing the event publicly.
How can I improve the likelihood of ATC staffing my event?
When creating an event with ATC in mind ensure the following:
- The featured airports have ATC frequencies
- The featured airports has ample parking and ramp space
- The featured theme would be complimented by ATC (airshows and landing competitions are often best without ATC on the Casual Server)
- The event offers a variety of airports in reasonable proximity to allow for a smooth flow of Air Traffic
- Event instructions are clear, concise, and not overly restrictive
How can I appeal my Level 2 or 3 Violation?
If reported by ATC on the Expert Server for an infraction you will be issued a Level 2 or Level 3 Violation. This may be appealed here on the Community Forum by sending a direct message to @appeals where you should provide your callsign, display name, location, details surrounding the report, and a replay file which can easily be uploaded here!
