Can I apply if I live outside the UK?
It's a requirement that you are eligible to work in the UK before you apply to train as an Air Traffic Controller. You can find out more about eligibility requirements on our website. Please note, we cannot provide assistance with obtaining a VISA.
Can I choose where I work?
No - that decision is made according to the needs of the Company. 80% of our controllers work in our Control Centres, so the chances are you'll be based at one of those in either Prestwick (in Ayrshire, Scotland) or Swanwick (in Hampshire, England).
If you are not posted to a Centre, it is highly likely that you'll be posted to an UK airport. We currently provide air traffic control at the following 13 major UK airports:
- Belfast City
- Belfast International
- London City
