FLY LEVEL started to train Air Traffic Controllers in 2012, by launching the first initial air traffic controller training course. From that moment, we became the first private Approved Training Organisation for Air Traffic Controllers in Romania.

 

What is an Air Traffic Controller?

Air traffic controllers are people that are trained to coordinate the safe, efficient and orderly movement of aircraft on the ground, at airports and within an assigned airspace. Air traffic controllers must be able to effectively perform different duties for different airplanes at the same time, and they must be able to do so without compromising the quality of their work. Those who become air traffic controllers have excellent decision-making, problem solving, communication, and multi-tasking skills. They are typically individuals who are able to endure large amounts of stress, and they are able to concentrate when there are a lot of things happening around them.

 

Initial ATC Training Courses

 

The objective of initial training is to prepare an ab initio for training at an air traffic control (ATC) unit. Initial training leads to the issue of a student air traffic controller licence or to the issue of an additional rating and, if applicable, rating endorsement.

After successfully completing the Initial Air Traffic Controller Training (Basic Course + at least 1(one) Rating Course) the candidates can apply for the Student Air Traffic Controller License. ATCO licences are issued by the Civil Aviation Authorities following completion of the appropriate approved initial training courses, examinations and assessments. Holders of the Student Air Traffic Controller Licenses can apply to appropriate Air Navigation Services Providers as Air Traffic Controllers.

 

Compliance with regulations

 

The ATC initial training provided by FLY LEVEL is made up of:

 

ATC Basic training course

 

The Basic ATC course is defined as theoretical and practical training, designed to give trainees a foundation level of knowledge and understanding of the work as an air traffic controller and the complete Air Traffic Management (ATM) system.

Successful completion of this course enables them to progress further onto rating training courses.

 

Basic Course overview

Theory. During the course trainees will learn: aviation law, air traffic management, aircraft, equipment and systems, human factors, professional environment, meteorology, and navigation.

 

Simulator training. The Basic Course shall, due to pedagogical and didactical considerations, aim for the integration of the acquired skills in suitable simulation exercises, which should be planned towards the end of the course. Beyond the purpose and nature of practical skills acquisition, the simulation in the Basic Course aims at the integration of several knowledge areas and skills to be performed at the same time. This ability is an important basic prerequisite to progress on to specialised training in the subsequent Rating courses. Demonstration of this ability, in simulation exercises is a means of assessment of the successful completion of the Basic Course.

 

Course duration: 3 months

 

Course scheduling: 6h/day, 5 days/week

 

Prerequisites

Candidates for the ATC Basic course shall comply with the following preconditions for admission, in addition to any client company requirements:
