Want to experience what it is like to be an air traffic controller? This one-week program will expose you to the exciting and rewarding field of ATC, where you will get the opportunity to control airplanes in our state-of-the-art simulator. Participants will learn real ATC phraseology, rules, and procedures, all operating on the same software used at FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) facilities throughout the United States! During your time in this program, you will learn departure, arrival, and final approach procedures for a real Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) airspace, controlling aircraft every day for the whole program. You will also receive the same level of attention and training our University students get, with a one-on-one training model from student employees and a lead instructor. Come join us in our most engaging and exciting lab on campus, where your week will be packed with hands-on learning from day one!
