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.
Heathrow offers a total of three endorsements:
The endorsement process for all Heathrow endorsements is the same, as follows:
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.
If you are interested in obtaining a Heathrow endorsement, please submit a ticket to ATC Training in the helpdesk.
