Visit ATC Day will once again take place this Autumn, giving UK pilots the opportunity to view proceedings at Air Traffic Control units around the country. The ASI, which helps co-ordinate the event, has now released details of this year’s units. Pilots curious to see life from an air traffic controller’s perspective are encouraged to sign up for a tour of their nearest unit during October and November.

The scheme, now in its fourth year, intends to increase the mutual understanding of pilots and controllers. All the visits will require prior registration and are open only to holders of pilot licences (NPPL, PPL, BGA certificate etc and student pilots). Those attending will be required to show their licence or evidence that they are learning to fly. Pilots who have not pre-registered or cannot produce their licence or evidence on the day unfortunately will not be admitted.

ATC units already confirmed include Swanwick, Prestwick, Manchester, Farnborough, Bristol, Birmingham, Belfast and Norwich.

A full list of participating units, with dates when each unit is open for a visit, and contact details for pre-registration, are listed below and will be updated on the ASI website.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. All the events are free of charge.
