Is it the traffic, or you?

December, 11, 2021 by

Your workload being high can be due to one of two things.

  • The amount of pilots you have to talk to
  • Your technique

Most don’t ever focus on the second point, the technique, and blame a high workload on traffic density. This is not the way to think.

You have to always be improving, as a controller. On tower there are ways that you can help ease your workload.

Get instructions out of the way as soon as you can so you have more time to deal with conflicts.

Purposely waiting will cause you to become over saturated.
