its a tough tough job la..
my bf's dad has juz retired from this job..

it's super stressful + u work in a super dark and cold room.. juz watching radars on a screen.. juz green blinking dots..

plus.. it is a must to be able to deal with the stress of controlling many many planes - equates to having to bear the responsibility of 1000 over lives in ur hands lei..

and muz have shift work :)

in SG work timing is like.. cycle of afternoon shift on day 1, 1pm - 8pm.. den day 2, morning shift of 8am - 12noon... and day 2 night shift of 8pm - 8am of day 3..

den day 3 off.. day 4 off.. den day 5 back to afternoon shift.. and the cycle goes on.. even on PH.. :)
