Applications are open for Home Controllers and Visiting Controller.
Differences between Home and Visiting Controllers?
A Home Controller is based in the Caribbean Division and as a result, they will conduct training, rating upgrades, and the majority of their hours in Santo Domingo FIR. Visiting controllers, on the other hand, are based in a different FIR or Division and as such will conduct most of their controlling hours, training, and rating advancements in their home facility.
Do I need a specific rating to become ATC?
For home controllers, you do not need a controller rating. For visitors, we require you to be rated S1 or higher.
