Have a safe flight!

BY CSILLA SZABO
@ VOL 34 ON JAN 30, 2018

We fly more often than before but seldom think about the people who actually make it possible for us, besides the pilots and stewardesses. Air traffic controllers are behind the scenes; their role is crucial for our family visits, business trips or dream holidays.

Csilla Szabó started working with air traffic controllers over a year ago and is fascinated by their work. In this presentation, she takes us into the world of air traffic controllers and tells us what she has learned from them.
