Do you have the skills to be an Air Traffic Controller?
Being a successful Air Traffic Controller isn’t so much about your previous work experience or background. It’s to do with the way in which you approach problems, handle pressure and adapt to changing situations.
The NATS Swanwick Centre, near Fareham in Hampshire is one of the largest and most advanced air traffic control centres in the world. They provide air traffic control services to aircraft flying in UK airspace, handling some 2.2 million flights carrying around 200 million passengers each year as well as managing air traffic in 30 countries across the world.
They have developed a series of mini-games to help you decide whether it’s the kind of career that might be right for you. They test a range of basic cognitive skills which are required by Air Traffic Controllers.
