New Member In-Processing Guide


Welcome to your new home Salt Lake City ARTCC (ZLC)

Here at ZLC we pride ourselves in our ability to provide realistic air traffic control (ATC) services to pilots using the real world operating procedures.

Of course, we realize the limitations of the network and different level of users, so we attempt to bridge the gap and provide our ATC with an extreme amount of resources to be able to do their job in a timely and accurate manner.

Through your studies with us, you will learn about a system we refer to as In-Scope Reference (ISR) where most of your data that would be normally memorized by the hundreds of controllers in the real world, is only a few keystrokes away for you. This is only one of many resources we provide our ATC.

To get you set up with ZLC and begin acquiring these skills, please keep this page bookmarked during your in-processing time to help guide you through the process.
