      While air traffic controller staffing levels have gradually increased, the flow control system is retained because it reduces air traffic controller stress and workload by delaying flights on the ground, not in the air. Aids to navigation are a critical element in the air traffic control system.   With staffing at air traffic control facilities at a year low, the FAA seeks a way to replace retirees with qualified candidates.

        Controllers used to be required to have at least eight hours of rest between shifts, but the government raised that minimum to nine hours on April Many facilities are closed at night, but 22%. What They Do: Air traffic controllers coordinate the movement of aircraft to maintain safe distances between them.. Work Environment: Air traffic controllers work in control towers, approach control facilities, or route work can be stressful because maximum concentration is required at all times. Night, weekend, and rotating shifts are common.

Air traffic control can be stressful. Physical Work Conditions. Always work indoors. May be exposed to loud sounds and distracting noise levels.

Work physically close to others, usually within a few feet. Air traffic controllers usually work in a small area. Work Performance. Make decisions quickly and without consulting a supervisor first. TRB Special Report - Air Traffic Control Facilities: Improving Methods to Determine Staffing Requirements reviewes the methodologies by which Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) estimates and applies its staffing standards, examines the feasibility and cost of modifying agency staffing standards and developing alternative approaches for application to individual facilities, and recommends an improvement strategy.

Book Description. Issues of personnel development in air traffic control (ATC) have become a major topic in aviation recruitment and training. Proper selection and training methods are needed in order to reach a high level of efficiency and reliability in ATC.

What are the future challenges to be faced by controller’s throughout the world. Some of these indicators are overtime, time on position, leave usage, and the number of trainees. In addition, staffing at each location can be affected by unique facility requirements such as temporary airport runway construction, seasonal activity and the number of controllers currently in training.

The Air Traffic Control System Baseline Methodology Guide serves as a reference in the design and conduct of baseline studies. Engineering research psychologists are the intended audience for the Methodology Guide, which focuses primarily on techniques for studying the interaction between ATC systems and the controllers who use them.
