Atlanta TRACON Tour

On Wednesday July 18, The Delta Pilot Network, in coordination with NATCA, hosted 30 Delta pilots for an in-depth, behind-the-scenes tour of the Atlanta TRACON facility in Peachtree City. The tour began with a very informative presentation from the TRACON controllers and representatives and included lively discussion amongst the controllers and the pilots.

The tour continued with a tour of the radar room where the controllers utilize the latest technology to safely guide aircraft through one of the busiest airspaces in the world. All of the Delta pilot attendees agreed that the Atlanta TRACON facility is the best in the world.
