Authorisation system for the Technical Service of the air traffic control of the Federal Republic of Germany

After completing their respective training or studies, technicians and engineers in the operational Technical Service of the DFS (Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH) must apply for a permit before they can apply for licences classified according to the respective air traffic control technical systems.

The permit and training are embedded in the German Air Traffic Act (LuftVG), which is standardised in detail by regulations concerning the training of authorised air traffic control personnel.

A trilingual presentation of this authorisation system especially for the Air Traffic Control Technical Service is attached to this text and available for download.
