What It Takes To Be An Air Traffic Controller At The World's Busiest Airport


Recommended Posts

A relatively short, informational, and interesting video for your viewing pleasure.

A few key points I noticed as it pertains to T!3DP/T!S3 and wishlist items:

  • Tower control airspace - in the case of KATL, 5 miles out and 4000 feet up
  • 2 hour max shifts
  • Granular positions
  • Detailed strips  
  • Efficiency (minimal talking, i.e. less commands)
  • Sequencing importance
  • Technological advancements (ASDE-X, Radar, GPS).
