DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "U.S. Air Traffic Control; Terminal Radar Approach Control Operations - Webinar" webinar to their offering.
The webinar topic presents the key Air Traffic Control training concepts and procedures relating to those operations occurring between the control jurisdiction of the airport traffic control tower and the enroute ATC facilities airspace, referred to as the Terminal Radar Approach Control facility or TRACON.
This topic goes into the various control positions within a TRACON, the airspace allocation to each position, and the role of the air traffic controllers as the streams of departure aircraft and arrival aircraft cross both paths and altitudes. It also focuses on how air traffic control services organize sequence, merge, and ensure separation for the multiple aircraft approaching an airport to land from multiple directions.
Discuss the various types of approaches that are commonly used in ATC. The webinar also shows how the basic concepts and procedures have been adapted to accommodate regions where there are multiple major airports in close proximity.
The "bottom" line is to try to capture:
1. what a TRACON controller is trying to accomplish
2. how he/she is doing it, and
3. what the controller is thinking while he/she is doing it.
It's that internalized notion of what it "feels like" to be a controller that is crucial to the understanding of ATC and to the development of new and advanced ATC capabilities.
