ATC - Air Traffic Control

Oct 1, 2017 - Dear players, please know this game will be retired with the iOS 11 release. Unfortunately, updating the app to work with iOS 11 would have required almost starting from scratch.

Instead, I have decided to focus on the newer ATC Voice for iPad, which has many updates and cool new features. I think you'll like it!

If you bought this game recently please contact me for an upgrade to the new game.

Thanks for understanding, -Alex, Looking West Apps

ATC – Air Traffic Control

Take command of the skies and guide arriving planes to a safe landing at their destination.

Simple Controls

Tap the plane to select it and then change the heading, altitude, and speed. Line the plane up with an active runway at its destination and clear it to land.

Loss Of Separation

Stay alert and look ahead for planes that are getting too close to each other. Keep planes 1000 feet apart in altitude and 3 miles apart horizontally.

KLAX Departing Runways

Departing planes will request takeoff clearance. Control which runways to depart airplanes from. Don’t leave them waiting too long before guiding them to their destination!


Command landing planes to descend before clearing them for approach and landing. But be careful and watch out for terrain.

Parallel Approaches

Direct planes in for simultaneous approaches on parallel runways.
