Our air traffic controllers
Who manages the airspace?
Our air traffic controllers are responsible for keeping our skies safe. With specialised controllers operating across airport towers, terminals and en route, our eyes are on the sky at all phases of a flight, from terminal gate to terminal gate.
The future of air traffic management
The OneSKY Australia program is an innovative example of next-generation technology in the aviation sector, delivering an advanced integrated air traffic management system between Airservices and the Department of Defence. It was developed to enhance the efficiency and security of air services, and support future air traffic growth.
Air Traffic Controller
Our Air Traffic Controllers connect people with people. It’s a challenging yet rewarding role that plays a key part in helping us manage the arrival and departure of more than 156 million airline passengers every year - and we’re looking for people like you.
When the right person is in the hot seat, it is the most satisfying job you can find. The training is tough, but it is worth every second of the hard work.
