AVST 1343 - Introduction to Air Traffic Control

Introduction to Air Traffic Control is the first course in the Tulsa Community College Air Traffic Control Degree option program. This course introduces students to the history of the FAA from its founding to the present day operation of the vast National Airspace System (NAS). Topics studied include the structure and classes of airspace, fundamentals of radar, the basic concepts and rules of separation of aircraft, the facilities which control air traffic and the duties of the positions within those facilities. Students will also learn about the FAA Orders and Directives which dictate procedures for control of air traffic as well as flight operations. Other major points covered include airport markings and lighting, flight plans, marking and processing of flight progress strips, ATC clearances, letters of agreement (LOAs) and standard operating procedure (SOP) documents, aircraft performance and recognition, and wake turbulence.
