Come experience what it means to be trained as an air traffic controller

DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung cordially invites you to its sixth recruiting day on 15 June 2013.

06.06.2013.- DFS is again welcoming young people between the ages of 16 and 24 to an open house at its campus location in Langen. The focus will be on the training to become an air traffic controller. This is because DFS is still looking for young people to train in the upcoming years.

Any question you may have about what is involved with this training will be answered on this day. Things like: What does an air traffic controller do exactly? What does a controller working position look like? What are the prerequisites? And how does the selection process work? You can get reliable information from air traffic controllers, instructors, staff from the human resources marketing department as well as from trainee controllers. There will also be other ways to inform yourself this day: Guided tours through the simulators will show you the daily work of a controller in their exchanges with pilots, a number of films will outline what is included in the theoretical lessons, various presentations will describe how the selection process works and explain how air navigation services as a whole work. An outside stage will be the venue for interviews covering subjects from your application to actually being hired. In addition, five lucky visitors will be chosen from all entry tickets to participate in a tour of the Langen Control Centre between noon and 2 pm.

Important: This event does not cost anything but you need to register to be admitted. If you are interested, please register at: <karriere.dfs.de>.
