NATS Scenario Training for Aircrew and Controllers [STAC]

As part of the on-going training undertaken throughout NATS, there is a desire to expand the TRUCE and continuous professional development of operational staff. As part of this development SRG have approved the expansion of the licensing requirement of TRUCE to include more pilot/controller interface activities. These with include controllers joining with pilots in LOFT experiences and a new workshop based activity known as STAC. More information …..

The success of the STAC programme relies heavily on having current pilots available to contribute to the scenarios and Members are encouraged to support STAC whenever possible. Whilst most of the training to date has been conducted at Swanwick, Farnborough and Gatwick, other locations can be arranged; please contact Anne Isaacs at NATS if you would like to support this training at your own bases
