Individual membership of GATCO is open to civil or military controllers, flight information service officers, aerospace battle managers (weapons) and anyone involved in air traffic management support, including non-operational positions. GATCO members are employed at units from small general aviation and military airfields to major international airports and en route centres. Members also include UK licensed controllers working abroad.
Moving to a non-operational job or retiring does not mean you can no longer suport the profession or make use of the benefits available to members. GATCO now provides reduced rates should you move to a non-operational position. Retired staff are also able to make use of most of GATCO’s benefits and can, of course, actively contribute to GATCO, while benefiting from reduced rates.
