The basic requirement is a VATSIM membership. As a recommendation a student will be based in Estonia, however we accept all applications and our training is available both on Estonian and English.
Your basic training will be provided by VATEUD, which will teach you different subjects, like Air Traffic Management, Meteorology, Phraseology etc. As this part will be completed, your rating training will be in VACC Estonia. Our training is split into 20 simulator exercises, some of which have to be completed for both runways. Those sessions can be requested from our website, if you are our student. At the end of each exercise, a session report will be available.
As you will advance, you will be allowed to take divisional theory test, followed by practical test online. The pass rate is 75%. Good luck and welcome on board!
Controllers have to be online as ATCO for at least 20 hours within a month in order to remain as an active controller in VACC Estonia. If a controller does not meet this condition, his licence will be cancelled. To reactivate your licence, please contact ATC Operations Director.
