General

The ATC academy manages the education of VACC-Austria's permanent and visiting controllers. The main purpose consists of the training of new controllers, quality control of our active controllers, arrange CPT's and over the shoulder sessions. The current ATC academy management, can be found on our homepage.

Becoming a Controller is different from becoming a pilot at VATSIM. As pilot, you log on and fly - you might want to study documents or do a pilot training, but you don't need to. Becoming a Controller is different:

  • You learn, you pass tests, you earn degrees that allow you to staff certain stations step by step.
  • You are part of a team which works with you, shares opinions, has disputes and fun together.

Therefore, there is a formal path for your education. With these steps (defined in VATSIM regulations), it is ensured that you are able to do the job you want to do, and have fun together with fellow controllers and pilots.
