About Oman Aircraft Control College

The Oman Aircraft Control College, which was previously known as Air traffic control school, is plying a leading role in meeting RAFO requirements of specialized trained staff in Ops sections including Air Defense System Operators. Training in this college is not exclusively confined to RAFO officers, but open for Operations officers from SAF, ROP and other security departments. The  idea of  upgrading  the  Air traffic control school  into a  college has been part of the  Hadaf  project  outcome  , which necessitated the introduction of  new auto simulator  to  keep pace with the latest aircraft and radar systems being introduced  into service.  Both  RAFO  and the authority  of civil aviation  executives  have  jointly collaborated  to make  the college a suitable  facility  that meet civil– military training needs.

The college is established to become a centre for air control and air defense training for the sultanate and the region as well. It hosts the latest equipment which includes:

a. Radar simulator.

b. ATC Tower simulator .

The establishment of OACC aimed at making this collage as a professional training center in Oman and the region through providing various air defense courses as well as the internationally known air control courses.


The syllabuses of Oman Aircraft Control College (OACC)

The OACC course syllabuses are mainly based on international expertise where the ICAO regulations are considered as a main reference for civil air control course. Whereas the Air control syllabus taught at RAF Showbury has been selected as a reference for OACC military air control courses. Additionally, air defense courses are similar in contents to the RAF syllabus.

The OACC provides high standard training to guarantee an excellent outcome of AT controllers which is a vital element for ensuring flight safety. However, the OACC is committed to develop best practices and is also keen to provide customer specific training solutions and introduce more fields of study within its training program, in order to maintain its place as a top- ranking training college.
