Welcome to the VATPAC ATC Training Academy

by Will Smart -

The VATPAC ATC Training Department is delighted to welcome you to the VATPAC ATC Training Academy. 

Here you will be able to undertake training to become an Air Traffic Controller in VATPAC airspace and learn other valuable skills for the VATSIM network.

The VATPAC ratings progress like so:

  • S2 (Student - Tower Course)
  • S3 (Senior Student - TMA Couse)
  • C1 (Controller - Enroute Course)
We offer an optional Procedural Tower Endorsement course for S2 rated controllers enabling you to be able to control a tower listed on the procedural towers list. Note: An S3 rating allows you to control all procedural towers.

We offer an optional Oceanic Endorsement course for C1 rated controllers enabling you to control any position listed on the Pacific Oceanic Partnership site.

We also offer a Senior Controller (C3) course for those who have demonstrated seniority, a high level of performance or any additional role as determined by the local region or division. Please make sure you have met the criteria and read the information on the VATPAC website before enrolling for this course.
