What do our air traffic controllers do?

As an air traffic controller you are responsible for safe and efficient incoming, outgoing and overflying air traffic in the controlled airspace above Belgium and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Every year, skeyes controls over 1 million aircraft movements. Both during the day and at night our air traffic controllers are on hand to give the pilots the necessary instructions regarding their flight level, flight paths and most importantly, to ensure that aircrafts remain at a safe distance from one other. Ladies and gentlemen, please board for this exciting job and reach the sky!

Will you help us keep our airspace safe? Become an air traffic controller!


Applicants' attention is drawn to the existence of a training clause in the skeyes, which applies in full to candidates selected for the training. This clause implies that, for a period of 3 years after the candidate has completed his air traffic controller training (i.e. the 'performance period'), he may be obliged to reimburse part of the costs of skeyes training in the event of voluntary departure. This part consists of a maximum of 80% of a part of the training costs during the first year, a maximum of 50% of a part of the training costs during the second year and a maximum of 20% of a part of the training costs during the third year, without the reimbursement ever exceeding 30% of the last annual salary.
