Visiting Controllers

The following apply for those who wish to become visiting controllers in the HvACC. Τhe applicant must:

  • Hold at least an S3 rating
  • Have their competency evaluated in an Over-The-Shoulder check

Understanding Greek is strongly recommended when controlling in Greece, both in oral and written form (in greek or latin characters), e.g. for the following reasons:

  • Being able to issue ATC instructions
  • Understand pilot requests or readbacks
  • Handle potential emergencies

The ability to understand/follow the Controller discussions on the forum is also advised.

If the applicant belongs to another Division/Region then additionally the “Transfer and Visiting Controller Policy” requirements, as well as the VATEUR policy for “ATC privileges of resident, transferring and visiting Europe Region members” must be followed.

Getting a visiting controller status doesn’t automatically grand you Athens Venizelos Airport (LGAV) / TMA control allowance (Major Airport requirements) unless those requirements are met during the visiting controller check.
