Understand the fundamental ATC operational procedures currently applied in the TRACON airspace and environment.


This particular 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.

Why Should You Attend

If you are a technical or management person involved in developing new and/or advanced ATC technologies involving TRACON operations, it is vital that you understand the fundamental ATC operational procedures currently applied in the TRACON airspace and environment. Without such a personal understanding, it is much more difficult to develop the successful and implementable new ideas and/or technologies that will advance TRACON operational efficiency and safety. 
If you are a pilot, much of your ATC exposure and experience will involve operating within TRACON airspace. Your experience will be more intuitive and less frustrating with an understanding of what the ATC system is trying to accomplish and how works. If you are simply interested in aviation, an understanding of TRACON operations is fundamental.

Areas Covered In This Webinar

This webinar will 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.

Learning Objectives
  • Core TRACON operational concepts
  • Standard and adapted airspace structures
  • Internal airspace allocation and sectorization
  • Standard Departure and Arrival ATC procedures
  • Examples of TRACON operational scenarios

Who Will Benefit
  • Engineers and other Developers of ATC Technologies and Systems
  • Managers and other Aviation Strategic Planners
  • Government and Industry Aviation Executives
  • Pilots
  • Aviation Enthusiasts
