Happy International Day of the air traffic controller, our favourite day of the year!
At NATS, every day is a day to celebrate the amazing work that our controllers do, but we always like doing something extra special on October 20th.
It’s safe to say that 2020 has not been the 100th anniversary year for air traffic control that anyone expected, but days like this give us the opportunity to shine a light on the invisible infrastructure that keeps the travel industry moving – air traffic control.
At NATS one of our main priorities is to inspire the next generation of aviation enthusiasts, so we always do our best to educate young people about how exciting science, technology, engineering and maths subjects can be.
So, to help keep your little ones occupied this upcoming half term we’ve put together a fun activity pack for the whole family to enjoy at home. Full of colouring in pages, fun activities, interesting facts about air traffic control and more… we hope you enjoy it and learn something along the way!
It can be printed and coloured in by hand, or open it in paint and complete it digitally – whichever works best for you.
We’d love to see your colourful pages and paper planes, so be sure to send us some pictures on social media so we can share our favourites.
