Air Traffic Control & Controller Lease

SafeSkys holds European Regulation (EC) 1035/2011 status as an Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP). This is regulated by the UK Civil Aviation Authority Safety & Airspace Regulation Group (UK CAA SARG). SafeSkys is an ANSP with equal experience of serving the needs of civil and military clients.


Traditionally, SafeSkys has provided staff to airports. Increasingly, airports are asking SafeSkys to take on the complete ANSP role and supply full turnkey services. The Company is changing and growing. New regulations governing ATC across Europe have also opened up fresh opportunities.

We employ - and supply - the very best staff to an increasingly diverse client base.

A specialised recruitment service

Are you a UK Civil ATCO looking for your next career move or a Military ATCO keen to broaden your experience? SafeSkys has opportunities for both.

Many ex-military ATCOs require civil qualifications, and we can advise on how to obtain them.

There are FIVE ways to become a UK Civil ATCO, depending on age and experience. In brief, these are:

  1. Get accepted for the NATS cadetship.
  2. Pay for your own training and find a job which offers further training.
  3. Become an ATC Assistant and work your way up.
  4. Join the RAF or RN as an ATC Officer and convert to CAA licences later (via self-funding or a NATS cadetship, depending on your age).
  5. Swap your European recognised ATC licence for a UK CAA recognised licence.

SafeSkys will be pleased to tell you more.
