Workloads of air traffic controllers (ATCOs) tend to be increasing by recent dense traffic. To mitigate the workloads, investigation of present ATCOs' workloads is required. The objective of this paper is to visualize ATCOs' workloads and interpret ATCOs' skills. We investigate ATCOs' tasks and classify them into four task levels, correlated with RPD (Recognition-Primed Decision) model. Then, we conducted a Realtime ATC simulation to analyze the results and propose a new tabulated expression for the task levels. This expression proved that our method can express ATCOs' workloads.
