AEP Air Traffic Control

Last Saturday saw the group learning about Air Traffic Control.  They looked at the various ways that air traffic controllers communicate with each other and how that has changed over the years.  They looked at the old style progress strips and then looked at the computer systems that are used today. They watched a very interesting video from NATS and answered questions they were given on a worksheet.  To end the session the group split in to pairs and went in to separate rooms to speak to each other using radios.  They followed the dialogue that air traffic controllers would use and all did very well using the phonetic alphabet.
