AVI Air Traffic Control

Project scope

 

This project involves the review of the Diploma of Aviation (Air Traffic Control) and nine associated Units of Competency to ensure the skills and knowledge requirements contained in the qualification address changes in technology, and national standards including safety regulations associated with the role of an air traffic controller.

 

The IRC identified that the impending technological upgrade changes would leave knowledge and procedural skill gaps for the existing 1700 air traffic controllers.  The Australian Government’s job outlook statistics estimates moderate growth in the number of workers over the next 5 years.

 

The key driver for this project is a technology program called One Sky which aims to harmonise civil-military air traffic management systems (CMATS), providing new levels of operational efficiency and safety. These changes will impact on Air Traffic Control job roles and potential new job functions.

 

The OneSky program will replace the current system and is expected to be rolled out by 2023 to harmonise civil and military air operations. Existing and new air traffic controllers all need to be trained in the operation of this new technology.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

The Aviation IRC will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed to provide subject matter expertise for the development of Training Package materials.

 

If you have any questions about this project or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Manager.

 

Timeline

 

The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 30 June 2022.
