Liverpool Virtual ATC Rules


Air Traffic Control



What is the job of an Air Traffic Controller?


1)An Air Traffic Controller's job is to support, advice, and help the pilots to reach their destinations, as quick as possible.

2)A controller has to separate the airplanes, and prevent accidents.

3) An ATC also informs the pilots about the dangers, he protects them kindly.

4) An Air Traffic Controller is not the boss. He is not the owner of the pilots. When a pilot joins an ATC session, it doesn't mean that the ATC is the master. It is a pleasure for the Controller, when a pilot joins and completes a flight.

5) The Controller has to be nice to all pilots and help the beginners. An Air Traffic Controller should be able to kick his best friend, if he does not follow the basic rules, or if he has not respect to the other pilots.

6) The Controller can kick a pilot...

            -If he is rude to him, or other pilots.

            -If he is dangerous for the other pilots. (Spawns at runway while a plane is on final)

            -If this is the only way to prevent a crash.

            -If the pilot does not know the (very) basics of Flight Simulator. (Takeoff, Landings etc.)




Usually in Flight Simulator, there is only 1 controller, who is called tower. Then he is responsible for all planes in his airspace.


When there is more than 1 controller, then every controller takes a different Frequency and has different responsibilities:



Very hard

Extremely hard




1) Ground: Medium responsibility. Every controller starts from Ground. The only thing he has to do is to take care of pilots taxiing from the runway to the gates, or from the gates to the runway. He gives taxi instructions, so he should know the airport very well.

3) Departure: High responsibility. Departure supports the airplanes after takeoff. When the plane takeoffs, it has to contact departure, report the altitude it is climbing and its destination. The Departure Controller gives instructions to the plane until it leaves the airport's airspace. So, it gives instructions to the aircraft to exit the airspace.

4) Approach: Very High responsibility. When a plane enters its destination airspace it has to contact approach. Approach will give vectors (instructions) to the aircraft until it is established on the localizer, or has the runway insight. Then the aircraft switches to the tower frequency for landing clearance. The Approach Controller has a very difficult job, as he has to handle many aircrafts, separate them, inform them about the wind, call them when they should report traffic insight etc.

2) Tower: Ultra High Responsibility. This is a station only for very experienced controllers! Most of the accidents happen here. The Tower Controller generally controls the runway. So, he gives takeoff and landing clearances. He also gives wind information. This is the most difficult job in the tower because if a Controller gives clearance to land, it means the runway is clear of airplanes, that the wind is ok for the aircraft, and that generally the whole airport is ready to welcome the airplane.
