“Provide air traffic control to aircraft on a ‘first come, first served’ basis as circumstances permit…”(ATP 7110.1B)
Air traffic controllers provide tower, radar & non-radar ATC services, including flight following for military & civilian air traffic. They control take-offs & landings, flights of instrument flight rules (IFR), visual flight rules (VFR) & special flight rules (SVFR) air traffic. The ATC operators provide enroute, terminal approach control & ground control approach (GCA radar) services. They perform air traffic control duties with a knowledge of flight rules, air traffic regulations, concepts & procedures at both fixed bases & tactical ATC facilities.
