Video: ASU students learn to control the skies

Students on ASU's Polytechnic Campus hone their air traffic control skills in two on-campus simulators


Senior Air Traffic Management student Rachel Langer receives feedback from her instructor, John Delugt, inside the En Route Simulator at ASU's Polytechnic campus in Mesa on Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020. 

The process of becoming an air traffic controller is very selective, but ASU's Air Traffic Management program hopes to give students an advantage over the competition. The program is part of the FAA's Collegiate Training Initiative, which aims to prepare students for the rigorous FAA Academy. Upperclassmen at ASU get to practice on two air traffic control simulators designed to mimic situations and environments they will see once on the job.
