Procedural Control Instruction

Recently Direct-Track Consulting was involved in the development and delivery of a specialized course of instruction for Ab-Initio ATC students in Procedural Control.

Procedural Control is a form of control relying on the protection of an aircraft in flight based solely on position information given via voice communication.  With no other aids such as radar or ADS-B to assist the controller in establishing the aircraft’s position.

This skill is considered an ancient form of Air Traffic Control but in many of the worlds remote locations this method of separating aircraft is all that is available. 

The courses Direct-Track delivered were for the En-Route as well as Approach Sectors.
