CAAP needs more Air Traffic Controllers


THE Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) will be needing at least 500 air traffic controllers (ATC) in the next five years, when satellite-based Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) will be fully operational by May 2017. CAAP spokesman Eric Apolonio said there would be greater demand for ATCs as soon as the P13.25 billion technology’s physical installation is completed by December this year, adding that at least 60 applicants who passed the CAAP’s ATC test have already undergone training, and the agency will continue hiring people to complete the ATC workforce.
