FEAST tests its 100,000th candidate air traffic controller

7 June 2019

Since its introduction in 2006, the number of organisations using our first European air traffic controller selection test (FEAST) tool has grown to 50 air navigation service providers (ANSPs) in 40 countries, including three non-European users: CAAS in Singapore, Dubai Air Navigation Services and NAV Canada. 

This week, however, we set a new milestone - FEAST was used to test its 100,000th candidate air traffic controller - Michele Zeno from Italy.

For Alex Wandels, Head of EUROCONTROL's Institute of Air Navigation Services (IANS), “FEAST is a high quality, thorough selection test that guarantees a high success rate in controller training”. 


FEAST is a product provided at IANS in Luxembourg. It offers a range of psychometric and other tests for the recruitment and selection of trainee ATCOs.

The selection tool was designed to maximise the success rates of ATCO candidates, and it assesses the knowledge, skills and abilities that are relevant and necessary for the job.
