The UND SATCA
has, for some time now, been releasing a set of well-produced videos on Air Traffic Control, entitled ATcast
. These videos cover a range of approach-level (and a few tower-level) aspects of Air Traffic Control. I've found the following episodes in particular to be very informative:
Merging Target Procedures
Overhead Maneuver (although I admit, the production values here aren't as good)
Obviously, these videos do not replace the in-person training that each S3-in-training must receive, but these videos may be a good way of ensuring that information is consistently communicated correctly to controllers. They're also good for review: I can now, easily, list the six ways of radar-identifying an aircraft, when before ... I could not.
The videos are all in MP4 format, so they can be played in a browser, or downloaded for playback on your computer, and on most video-capable portable devices. There is also a direct download link for iTunes
