17 Things Air Traffic Controllers Keep Silent About

What do air traffic controllers do? Is it a stressful job? An air traffic controller isn’t that person on the ground who’s standing in front of your airplane waving their hands around! That’s an aircraft marshaller – these specialists assist pilots in stopping, turning, and shutting the engines down. Air traffic controllers are responsible for the safe plane movement in the air – and this profession’s bound to have some exciting secrets!

For example, they speak not only English (the language of the skies) but also Aviation English! It consists of about 300 words and is a combination of good old English and professional jargon. This language was invented to prevent air controllers and pilots from mishearing each other – in their job, even tiny miscommunication can lead to disastrous consequences!
