Air Traffic Controller
Air traffic controllers coordinate the movement of aircraft to maintain safe distances between them. They control the aircraft flow into and out of the airport space, guide pilots during takeoff and landing, and track aircraft for safety purposes as they fly through the skies, to track and guide aircraft movement in the sky and ground traffic at airports. Air traffic controllers use radar, computers, or visual references.
