The ‘Air Traffic Control Stereotypes’ was inspired and put together much like the ‘Airline Procedures and Stereotypes’ video, only this one deals with the controllers, not the pilots. Using both community feedback and speaking from experience, we came up with some types of air traffic controllers you’re sure to meet at some point during your career.
I’m sure you have all worked with these stereotypes before. I’ve personally worked with just about every single one of them. The last one is a personal tribute to a controller that I used to work with in a large TRACON. He was such a friendly guy, but gave the longest most pointless briefings in the entire world. It was also a shout out to a friend of mine “Michael” that used to be on the receiving end of those briefs.
