The specific tasks you’ll perform as an employee will often vary from game to game, but in general there are over ten different core tasks to complete during a game: sorting, completing a ‘follow me’ process, landing wedges and cones, looking at a plane’s GPU, refueling serving food, connecting jetways and passenger staircases, using different shuttle buses, and baggage handling.

To keep track of everything during the game, you’ll have access to a dedicated tablet where you can monitor both incoming and outgoing flights, passenger and luggage needs, and real-time weather conditions. The game’s weather is calculated using the METAR weather report system, a common format for reporting weather information in the aviation industry.
