IFATC at Home

IFATC members may choose which airports to open only in the country they represent. ATC is encouraged to open their home airports, though they may open any airport they’d like in their country.

NOTAM // IFATC at Home Topic Rules

Individual IFATC at Home topics are no longer allowed.

On Wednesday, February 24th, a wiki IFATC at Home topic will be posted with a specific airport format for IFATC members to follow. Controllers wishing to post the airport they intend to open along with field information may do so in a comment. A TL3, Moderator, or Staff member will then insert that information into the main topic body.
This centrally located IFATC at Home topic will serve as a HUB for pilots to review all airports intended to be staffed while also reducing forum clutter. Thanks for your participation!


*denotes airports that must not be opened by controllers in the Specialist or Officer check ride phase.

AMA with Tyler Shelton #2

January, 21, 2021 by Tyler Shelton
Comments

Hello, everyone! My name is Tyler Shelton and I’m looking forward to today’s AMA where I get to answer your questions.

I am the Air Traffic Control Community Manager at Infinite Flight and also work full-time as an Air Traffic Controller in the FAA. I’ve been fortunate enough to hold both positions for 7 years. My time as an Air Traffic Controller began with 6 years in the United States Air Force stationed at Moody AFB, GA. This gave me the opportunity to deploy overseas twice, become an ATC Supervisor, and develop a unique perspective on ATC that I can integrate into Infinite Flight. In 2019 I began working as a civilian controller with the FAA assigned to Harrisburg International Airport [KMDT].

Like many of you, I love everything aviation and am always eager to learn more and share what knowledge I have with others! This is what drives me to be a part of our Infinite Flight and IFATC community each day. Ask me anything!
