In order to introduce the world of ATC to potential air traffic control trainees, the Deutsche Flugsicherung [DFS] have put a number of games / tests online for free.
These tests are fun to do and give a good insight of some of the skills one needs to become an air traffic controller including:
- Continously splitting attention over a number of task – whilst maintaining an overall picture.
- Extrapolation of spacial position and conflict resolution through turning [vectoring] of aircraft.
- Appreciation of left and right turns
Have a look at these games and tests, I am sure you’ll like them.
My favourite is Pushing Thin [comes with an addiction warning]
Well done to DFS. Great inititive and great tests!
If anyone know of other similar games and test, please share with the rest of us by commenting to this post.
