Advanced ATC, Inc. is a privately held company established in 2008. AATC’s founding partners are retired Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ATC managers. Our instructors are retired and active Air Traffic Controllers from the FAA, federal contractors, and military. Advanced ATC, Inc. (AATC) conducts the training to meet and exceed all FAA regulations under Part 65.
In December 2008, Advanced ATC, Inc. and Wiregrass Georgia Technical College, (formally known as Valdosta Technical College) formed a partnership to offer ATC training at their Valdosta campus. Advanced ATC also partnered with the Valdosta/Lowndes County Airport Authority and the City of Valdosta to operate the Valdosta Regional Airport Tower. This allows AATC the opportunity to provide practical experience for our students.
AATC is dedicated to producing the most highly qualified Air Traffic Control applicants for the Federal Aviation Administration. Therefore, we conduct our training in an academy style. We recognize each student is a unique individual who deserves the best ATC program available. Our staff adheres to high standards and is dedicated to our mission and to providing everything the student needs to succeed in the field of Air Traffic Control.
Integrity, Experience, and Passion!
Advanced ATC, Inc. is the creation of a common vision of its three founding partners.
The three founding partners are all retired from the FAA. With over 100 combined years of experience in Air Traffic Control, each partner brings with them a specialized area of expertise in ATC operations.
Their vision is driven by a passion to provide an expedient and efficient solution to the FAA’s current and projected Air Traffic Controller shortage. Their commitment is to provide a supportive and conducive environment to ensure every student’s greatest chance of success. This will be accomplished by providing a low student-to-instructor ratio, an intensive curriculum, and superior instructors along with the latest and best air traffic control tower simulation technology available in the marketplace today.
Advanced ATC’s leadership is proud and grateful for its partnerships with Wiregrass Georgia Technical College and the Valdosta/Lowndes County Airport Authority. It is through their support and forward thinking that Advanced ATC is able to launch this exciting opportunity for young men and women interested in an Aviation Career.
