Air Traffic Controller (video game)

Air Traffic Controller (video game)

is a simulation computer game series that simulates the operation of an airport developed by TechnoBrain.

Initially released as a computer game, there has also been three PSP versions, a Gameboy Advance and a Nintendo DS version.

The games simulate the job of an air traffic controller. The player's mission is to direct planes onto the correct ILS, land them on the correct runway, taxi them to the correct gate, and take off on the correct runway as fast as possible.

Air Traffic Controller was released in Japan in July, 1998. Air Traffic Controller 2, its sequel, was released in 2005.
