Guest Controller Approval


The Indonesia airspace is vast volume of airspace and is frequented by a large number of regional and international air traffic. The Indonesia Division is always pleased when members from other divisions show a keen interest in performing ATC responsibilities in our airspace.

Since the Indonesia Division is participating in the GCA programme according to R&R 5.1.7, we have laid down a set of guidelines for guest controllers to follow before they can be permitted to control in Indonesia airspace.

Refer to IVAO Training Department regulations T.2

Divisions may require members of foreign divisions to obtain a Guest Controller Approval before providing ATC services. Divisions shall announce their participation and publish their requirements on the division’s website. Such GCA requirement(s) shall be published on the division website in English language

  1. All IVAO members outside Indonesia Division with an ADC (or higher) rating can apply for a GCA

  2. All GCA candidates shall not hold more than 2 GCAs in different divisions

  3. ADC holder shall control any facilities up to TWR, while APC holder shall control any facilities up to CTR, while there will be no restrictions for ACC holder

  4. Subject to regulation (3), a GCA holder who recently passed an ATC exam in his/her division, must conduct a training/familiarisation with the training staff

  5. IVAO Indonesia will not consider any GCA application of former members of the IVAO Indonesia Division, unless the transfer process has been completed more than 12 months following a new request

  6. IVAO-ID may require an interview session and proficiency check prior to grant GCA

Your GCA shall be revoked unless you meet the following requirements :

  • Control the approved facilities at least 6 hours every 2 months

  • Do not get a IVAO suspension while having the GCA

  • Make a good use of the GCA: good behaviour and do not violate IVAO Rules & Regulations, provide a quality service according to divisional and local procedures.

Nevertheless, TC/TAC or the Division HQ shall revoke your GCA anytime justifiably.
