In light of the recent interviews that have been conducted for a new Tower TGI, I am delighted to announce that @Matthew Dean will be joining the training team in this position.
Matthew is extremely keen to continue our venture towards a structured initial training plan, and shared some great ideas with the team during his interview. With him, Matthew brings a wealth of real-world experience including currently undergoing training in the real-world ATC environment which, as we have seen with some other members of the training team, lends itself well to what we are trying to achieve on VATSIM.
The interest and enthusiasm we had from all applicants was extremely refreshing and I look forward to everyone who applied getting more involved in the training team.
As one comes, one goes, and unfortunately, we will be saying goodbye to @James Yuen. It cannot be overstated how much time, energy and enthusiasm James has given to the Training Department over the many years. He has nurtured Heathrow for as far back as I can remember and has played a key role in running our tower training alongside the other TGIs. Please join me in thanking James for his tireless efforts over the years; I have been assured he won't be a stranger.
I hope Monday hasn't been too hard on anyone - enjoy the reset of your week 😄!
