Thank You IFATC - Happy International Air Traffic Controller Day!

International Air Traffic Controller Day


This is not going to ha a long post, but it’s important. I just wanted to put this thread out there to say thank you to all the IFATC controllers, as well as all the real controllers every day to keep us safe in the air. Thank you, and you are the reason why airplanes are able to fly safely every day!

Official Holliday Description

The International Day of the Air Traffic Controller, celebrated October 20th each year, marks the anniversary of IFATCA (International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations), which was founded on the 20th October 1961. The day also celebrates all the men and women around the world who work to help make air travel the safest possible mode of transport. Last year we were 3.5 billion passengers that actually put our security and our “life in the sky” in their hands.

Enjoy your day off @Tyler_Shelton 😉

A very special thanks to @Z-Tube and @ToasterStroodie for being the ones to inspire me to train for ATC. I am in the process now, and i wouldn’t have started without them! They come to all the training sessions possible, and i am confident they (and of course many others who attend) will lead me to success!

I just wanted to thank not only the whole IFATC team, but the whole IFC community and the pilots.

Without the pilots and the users on the Infinite Flight Community, the IFATC team and the controllers will not have the traffic to provide the excellent service that they do on a daily basis.

I am thankful to every IFATC controller and controller IRL as well that continues to keep our virtual and real-world skies safe during this crazy time.

Appreciate every single one of the IFATC team, and every single member of this community.

We are one, we are family!
