NATS, Swanwick are looking for commercial pilots to come along to our Emergency Training Sessions once again. Please find details below:-

ART - ATCO Refresher Training
ART involves both classroom and practical simulator sessions; these sessions are generally enhanced by the presence of a commercial pilot. ART takes place at our Corporate and Technical Centre (CTC) at Whiteley (approximately 3 miles from Swanwick). The session will commence 1300 for Area Control or 1400 for Terminal Control and finish approximately 1900 hours.

There will be an opportunity to visit the Ops room at Swanwick before the ART session. Please advise if you would like to visit the Ops room so we can make the necessary arrangements. We suggest arriving at Swanwick from 1000 to gain the most from your visit to the Ops room, but please be aware that this will be subject to staff availability on the day.

If you donít wish to visit the Ops room at Swanwick, please arrive at the CTC Whiteley 20 minutes before the session is due to commence. You will be met at Reception by one of the ART facilitators.

STAC - Scenario Training for Aircrew and Controllers
STAC aims to improve communication between pilots and controllers. It is solely classroom based but uses some radar replays to enhance discussions with controllers from Area Control and other Aviation Professionals including pilots. A member of the Swanwick Training Team will facilitate mutually constructive conversations during a 0900 - 1430 day session. There will be an opportunity to visit the Ops room at the end of the session.

We are able to offer some mileage expenses (for ART and STAC), up to the maximum of 260 miles towards the cost of your journey to Swanwick. There will be an expenses form which should be completed on the day of the visit. The rate currently stands at 20p/petrol per mile, 18p/diesel per mile, 16p/LPG per mile and 18p/motorcycle per mile.

If you would like to participate in an ART or STAC session, please contact the Training Support Team by email at [email protected] .
