Heathrow (EGLL)

London Heathrow (EGLL) is the only airfield in VATSIM UK that has been designated as a major aerodrome under the regulations set out in VATSIM's Global Ratings Policy. Members rated S2 or higher may undertake a number of special endorsements to be allowed to control Heathrow positions up to and including their permanent controller rating. VATSIM UK does not offer training at Heathrow towards a new permanent controller rating. These endorsements are also required for any controller that wishes to open or be trained on the London South sector group or encompassing bandboxes.

Endorsements Offered

Heathrow offers a total of three endorsements:

  • Ground and Delivery
  • Tower
  • Approach Radar

Endorsement Process

The endorsement process for all Heathrow endorsements is the same, as follows:

  1. Enroll on the online Moodle course relevant to the validation to be achieved.
  2. Complete the Moodle course and pass the final exam.
  3. Undertake practical sessions with a Heathrow mentor.

Once the mentors deem that you have reached the required standard, you will be awarded with the validation. No formal, advertised validation session is required.

Get Started

If you are interested in obtaining a Heathrow endorsement, please submit a ticket to ATC Training in the helpdesk.
