ATC Recruiting Brochure - mid 1960s

This DCA recruiting brochure for Air Traffic Controllers dates from the mid-1960s. Wages are quoted in dollars and decimal currency came in 1966; the Boeing 727 was introduced to Australian service in 1964 (see back cover photo); and the Bright Display radar system is in use in Sydney. The brochure is known to have been distributed to ATC recruits in 1967.

The brochure provides an interesting insight into operation of the Air Traffic Control system of the mid-1960s, as well as the wages and conditions of the men (no women in those days) who manned it.
