Pilot Information Nights

The Airservices Pilot Information Nights are currently on hold until 2017. To be placed on a waiting list, or to be notified of when these information sessions are scheduled in 2017, please email

Are you curious about what happens on the other end of the radio? Do you have any questions about air traffic control (ATC) but never had the chance to ask them? Then book in to attend one of our Pilot Information Nights to learn about the air traffic system and what impact pilot activities, decisions and operations can have. All recreational, general aviation and professional pilots are welcome.

Pilot Information Nights are available at our Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney facilities. Please be aware that our sessions do not include visits to the tower at any of these locations.

What will I see?

Our Pilot Information Nights start with an overview of ATC operations followed by some presentations on important operational safety issues such as runway safety and airspace infringements.

Participants will then get a chance to visit our facilities and watch controllers at work. This tour includes a visit to our air traffic control simulator for a closer look at the equipment used by controllers.

The two-and-a-half hour session ends with light refreshments and the opportunity to ask questions and raise any issues of concern.

Please note that for large group bookings we can offer a tailored session to cater for your specific operations and requirements. Please enquire when booking.

Who can attend?

Pilot Information Nights are open to those in the industry, based or operating in Victoria, south-east Queensland or the greater Sydney metropolitan area. Pilots, instructors and student pilots, or those who hold a red Aviation Security Identification Card, may attend. If you wish to attend but do not fall into one of these previously-mentioned categories, please email
