Spotting From The Control Tower | Edition 2


Whoops… how did this slip out earlier than I wanted it to. Well I couldn’t stop inching for it to come out so soon, so here we are.

Researching more and more… I couldn’t sop finding more rewarding sessions and stories that makes the IFATC team who we really are today.

Last time on “Spotting From The Control Tower” their stories were so inspiring, thoughtful and well managed. Where all of you the community all wanted to see more and more.

In fact this has allowed me to find people who have gone above and beyond. Most importantly letting the pictures and the stories come together to keep you motivated and determined to do well just like the controllers we are about to meet.


To add this was @Davide_DC first ever session as an IFATC controller. Being able to manage thease situations comes with time, dedication and a true passion for controlling. Where @Davide_DC will go on to shine on the bigger frequencies in the near future.



With useful tips and great people out there couldn’t not be a better person to contact in order to share all the hard dedication he has put into helping people. This has now been very clear on the IFATC weekly stats and I will let @ThomasR tell his story.


@ThomasR says that he is not much for speeches. What lies they are as it’s super inspiring to see someone totally dedicated to helping others especially preparing for those all important IFATC promotions.

I’m not much of a writer you see so I thought why not just give this a shot to give people a much better understanding on the other side. Making sure your safe in the air and on the ground where we could also answer any questions people have and want to ask.

Supper appreciate your kind and thoughtful words.
