October 20th marks the birth of IFATCA. Our Federation was established at a meeting in Amsterdam on October 20th 1961. Since then, Air Traffic Controllers around the world celebrate the day as the International Day of The Controller. Many Member Associations host special events to draw the attention of the general public to what is still a relatively unknown profession.
Coinciding, IFATCA and the editorial team of The Controller, our Federation's magazine, is proud to launch The Controller app. Currently available for Apple's iPad and iPhone devices, the app can be downloaded for free in the iTunes App store. After downloading it, it will be available in the Newsstand folder.
Single issues cost $0.99 / €0.89, but a subscription is also availalbe: this gives you access to all previous issues as well for one year. Currently, all issues since the end of 2006 are available, with more to come soon.
An Android version will also be available before the end of the year.
