No longer an IFATC Specialist

Hey IFC! You may wonder why I’m no longer an IFATC Specialist. Because…

I’m officially promoted to IFATC Officer!!

After 84 days of training, 28 training sessions, and 18 airports, I have successfully passed my Radar practical test and I am now the 175th IFATC Officer. It was a long journey but a meaningful one. I remember my first training session where I issued OK-LOL, aka @FN60fps, a 3nm downwind for his ILS approach. I remember crashing Judgement 1 @Metier into the same mountain consecutively for 2 training sessions at KCOS. Reflecting on these mistakes and reviewing my trainer’s feedback after every training session made me improve a lot over the past months. I would like to thank my Recruiter @ToasterStroodie for recommending me to two amazing trainers @JulietTango and @NJ24. It was a pleasure working with the top controllers in the team and learning their tips in controlling radar. IFATC radar training has taken me to the most challenging high-terrain airport across the globe. From the Mountainous Mexico city to the even more mountainous Kabul, I gradually build up my terrain awareness. Through 84 days of training, I’m confident that I’m now capable of keeping my airspace safe and efficient. The promotion is a great gift, as I reached my anniversary with Infinite flight last week. It was a blast with Infinite flight over the past year. Thanks to those who have helped me over the year; meeting you all was a pleasure. To the community members I haven’t gotten a chance to meet, looking forward to seeing you in the sky!
