Okay thank you


Are there any training options e.g training in training server with you guys and afterwards you can tell me the mistakes. Is there something of this kind?

And it was my dream to become a part of IFATC. Do you know how long the process takes without having to Repeat one of the tests?
I just don’t know what to expect regarding the time and stuff

Indeed, we have a program exactly like that set up for people just like you!

All you need to do is take the written IFATC test and then submit a form, and we can train you & provide feedback, ultimately preparing you for the IFATC practical test.

More info & the form can be found below regarding training:

If you are planning joining IFATC, you could make an ATC Thread


What exactly is that 😅

I’ll cover this in a sec. I’m just creating a bunch of links that could help you.

Thank you so much 🙏

A topic where you open a frequency for training and some folks test you

Basically it is a thread where you say when you’re open as ATC. When you’re open, you chose an airport and people will come to you and test your controlling skills. This can be anyone from the public.

And just like that I’m trust level 1

You can make it regardless of your TL

I can’t put an exact date on that;
It’s really up to how much effort, motivation & commitment you put into your recruitment process! Additionally, recruiter availability is another key factor :)

You’ll be there in no time though if you put all you’ve got into it!

Adding on more info, I’ll add a bunch of links to help you over time:

Of course, your trust level has to rise, which it will easily and naturally do over a short period of time.

First thing is to create an ATC Tracking Thread. This will get many users publicly on the forum to come to an airport you choose, and review your controlling skills. Be aware that sometime no one will show up.

You would then once confident want to contact a recruiter, found in this topic.

They’ll assign you a written test, and you can either pass, or most like first time, not make it. The first time gives you a great idea of what to expect on both tests. So in other words, don’t be suprised at all if you don’t pass the written the first time.

You’ll then have a practical test which is on the training server, where about 5 will test your Ground and Tower skills. Radar comes later by your choice…

If you feel you need more training after you’ve contacted a recruiter, i.e in the training process, you can request for ATC Training. This gives you a much more in depth, more highly skilled training session.

If you make it, great! If not, then there’s always another try. When I was IFATC I didn’t, ake it first try, and had to wait a whole period until I could take the test again. I passed first time on the comeback though :)

Also apologies for repeating multiple things, some were here before typing, and some wasn’t. Just thought I’d bundle it up with some info.


That’s no problem. I appreciate taking the time for me.
