Air traffic controllers coordinate the movement of air traffic, to ensure that aircraft stay safe distances apart.

Duties

Air traffic controllers typically do the following:

  • Issue landing and takeoff instructions to pilots
  • Monitor and direct the movement of aircraft on the ground and in the air, using radar, computers, or visual references
  • Control all ground traffic at airports, including baggage vehicles and airport workers
  • Manage communications by transferring control of departing flights to traffic control centers and accepting control of arriving flights
  • Provide information to pilots, such as weather updates, runway closures, and other critical information
  • Alert airport response staff, in the event of an aircraft emergency
  • Air traffic controllers’ primary concern is safety, but they also must direct aircraft efficiently to minimize delays. 
  • They manage the flow of aircraft into and out of the airport airspace, guide pilots during takeoff and landing, and monitor aircraft, as they travel through the skies.
  • Controllers usually manage multiple aircraft at the same time and must make quick decisions to ensure the safety of the aircraft. 
  • For example, a controller might direct one aircraft on its landing approach, while providing another aircraft with weather information.
  • The following are examples of types of air traffic controllers:
  • Tower controllers direct the movement of vehicles on runways and taxiways. 
  • They check flight plans, give pilots clearance for takeoff or landing, and direct the movement of aircraft and other traffic on the runways and other parts of the airport. 
  • Most work from control towers, as they generally must be able to see the traffic they control.
  • Approach and departure controllers ensure that aircraft traveling within an airport’s airspace maintain minimum separation for safety. 
  • They give clearances to enter controlled airspace and hand off control of aircraft to en route controllers. 
  • They use radar equipment to monitor flight paths and work in buildings known as Terminal Radar Approach Control Centers (TRACONs). 
  • They also provide information to pilots, such as weather conditions and other critical notices.
