I never thought the importance of an Air Traffic Controller until now.  For every safe flight, an unrecognized person is on the other side of the pilot’s console responsible for it.  90 % of the population believed that the safety on an aircraft lies on the hands of the pilot alone.  Little do they know that air communicators and air traffic controllers are the unseen entities we should be grateful too.

Traveling in the airspace is not easy as we thought it is.  It looked vast and impossible to be congested and jammed to a collision but the airspace is so little while the number of aircraft flying in it are increasing.  Advance technology, sophisticated and complex instruments are sprouting like mushrooms to boost safety and prevent collision.  Still, accidents come about.    Sometimes, shit happens.  It’s beyond the pilot’s control and at times, pilot’s negligence.  So Air traffic controllers are there to ensure the safety of each flight conducted.   They have saved more lives in one shift than  surgeons in their entire lives.  According to surveys, controller is the most stressful job in the U.S.  Nonetheless, people aspire to become one.
