ARTICLE

ABSTRACT

The article deals with the characteristics of the provision of air traffic services (in member states of European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC)), as one of the main subject supporting global tourism, as well as with the selection of suitable candidates for the air traffic controller profession and the means and methods that are being used for the selection of eligible candidates. The authors present an original elaboration of approaches to selection processes in the Czech Republic in the context of the current development of European security and the perception of the human factor as a critical element of security and safety in air transport. In doing so, the authors use content analysis, as the results of empirical surveys present the results of discrete research surveys and evaluations based on explorative methods.
