Whether you are an IFATC beginner or a seasoned expert that has been with the team for a long time, you are going to have to control heavy amounts of traffic.

Sometimes, this heavy traffic gets unexpectedly thrown upon you, as throughs of aircraft on the ground and in the air suddenly begin to rain down on your airport.

Many times, you are unaware that it could get this heavy so you quickly. You may be controlling multiple frequencies, something that you may not be able to handle on your own for your experience or because the level of traffic is so high.

Don’t fear and ask for help. This come with experience but you have to know and accept your limitations. Ask for relief without any shame.

Everyone has been there.
