AVST 2226 - Air Traffic Control Tower Operations II

A continuation of ATC Tower Operations I. Through a series of simulation scenarios under instructor supervision, students will learn and demonstrate the use of ATC rules and procedures by working simultaneous arrivals, departures, closed (touch & go) traffic and helicopter operations on multiple runways/helipads. Students will demonstrate correct wake turbulence separation, use of taxi-into-position-and-hold operations, runway crossings with both aircraft and vehicular traffic, and handling emergencies. The simulation scenarios become progressively more complex with students providing ATC tower services to small, large, and heavy weight classes of aircraft simultaneously, with emphasis on the correct prioritizing of duties. See the TCC Aviation Academic Counselor at the Riverside Aviation Center for course permission and enrollment requirements. Prerequisite: AVST 1354 .
