Handling departing traffic from a busy aerodrome


VVDepartures™ is an Air Traffic Control trainer that provides skills pertaining to the processing of departing traffic that are that are complementary to those presented in the companion course, VVApproach™. Concepts are presented using an organised sequence of learning steps which explain the thought processes informing the required control decisions.

As the culmination of the course requires the processing of both inbound and outbound aircraft, the course is most suitable as an extension of VVApproach™.
