Are you interested in joining the IFATC team? If so, you've come to the right place.
The IFATC Recruiting process is outlined below and must be followed in order to become a certified controller and gain the ability to control the skies of the Expert Server.
- Click on the Join ATC! tab of this website.
- Review and ensure you meet all IFATC requirements. Once you've done so, fill out the application and ensure that each entry is entirely accurate.
Note: Callsigns and display names are case-sensitive and must be written exactly as they appear in-app.
Submit your application and you will receive a recruit ID unique to you that will be used to track your progress throughout the process. This can be done by going to the "Check your Progress" tab and inputting the ID into the displayed box. If you qualify, a recruiter will be in touch with you within 3-5 days.
Complete the written exam as directed by your assigned Recruiter. A passing score of 80% is required in order to proceed. A failing score of 0-49% will result in a 30 day retest period and failing scores of 50-79% may retest in two weeks.
Note: The process will be terminated for 90 days if the written exam has been failed three times. A new application will be required to initiate the process after 90 days.
Once you have passed the written you will be scheduled for a Practical Exam. Your recruiter will schedule the time and date of the practical along with the evaluation airport.
Marginal performance results in a two week wait to retest. A poor performance result in a retest wait of 30 days. Varying and/or alternative lengths may be determined at the recruiter's discretion based on performance.
Note: The recruiting process will be terminated for 90 days if you fail the Practical Exam three times in a row.
OPTIONAL: ATC Training may be pursued if you've passed the ATC Written Exam and completed at least one Practical Exam.
If youíve made it this far, youíve passed the practical. Congratulations! You are now part of IFATC. A private invite link will be sent to gain access to our IFATC Discord Server. Once you have access, a welcome message will be sent to you. Read it in detail in order to understand how IFATC functions.
