ATC, CAA, Airports, Rulemakers – join our OPSGROUP Slack community

By Declan Selleck


OPSGROUP is an international community of Pilots, Dispatchers, Controllers and Aircraft Operators. We have 4000 members across 90 countries, responsible for managing and operating Airline, Corporate, Private and Military flights. Members share information and work together to make International Flight Operations easier.

Every day in different channels in slack – an app that allows live discussion –  there are discussions on the latest rule changes, airspace rules, airport , big weather, incidents, events – anything that might make your day more interesting, especially if you don’t know about it.

We have multiple channels discussion International Operations across the world.

So, to make our discussions better – and get more input from the official side – we are inviting controllers – Tower, Approach, Enroute, CAA’s, FAA’s, Airport operators – to join and be there to see what operators want to know from you.

We are inviting YOU to join the discussion. If you’d like to connect directly with the pilots and operators using your airspace, airport, or trying their best to follow your new rules, then you will find being part of the Slack discussion useful. And in turn, our members will be most happy to have you on board to ask questions now and again.

How it works

You’ll get a login that matches what you do, so it’s easy for group members to see who you are. If you’re a controller at Shanwick, then we might use @shanwick_atc, or if you’re the Ops manager for Sydney airport, then you’ll become @SYDAirport. If you’re the second person there, then we’ll call you @SYDAirport-Tim, or whatever. If you’re at Eurocontrol, then maybe @eurocontrol_ops. If you’re at the Slovenian CAA, then @SloveniaCAA. And so on.

You can view slack in your browser, download the App for your phone, or one for your Mac or PC. Either way, you’ll get immediate access to our group of 4000+ members, and can interact with them.

Win Win

You get to talk to your airspace users, customers, and rule-followers, and see what’s going on. And they get to talk to you. It’s an informal environment, so we don’t expect any official responses or need to use bureau-speak. Just help folks along their way. There’s no charge to join in this way – we are happy to have your input and knowledge!


There is no obligation to join the group as full member, but you are most welcome to – you’ll get a full weekly International Ops Briefing, daily updates, access to Airport Spy, Guides, Lowdowns, Charts – for the full rundown on that click here.


Joining our slack discussion group is by invitation from the FSB Team. If you haven’t received an invite, pop your details in here and we’ll let you know.
