Testing Aptitudes as Part of the Selection Process of Air Traffic Controllers by the Czech Armed Forces
Keywords:Process of selection of ATCo, testing of aptitudes, professional simulation tasks, simulation technology
The article concerns with a process of the air traffic controllers (ATCo) selection in the Czech Armed Forces. It describes current state of this process and balances it briefly against the civil sector and some NATO armies. The text comes out from the assumption that the air traffic control profession is the profession specific by its work content and workload and so it has special requirements on its candidates. The authors occupy themselves with the thought of how effective is the process of the air traffic controllers selection without testing the candidates’ aptitude to use simulation technologies.
