A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Air Traffic Controller Collection - Air Traffic Controllers are persons who expedite and maintain a safe and orderly flow of air traffic and help prevent collisions. By their nature, they need to have an inherent spatial perception which is ordered differently from the average. At initial selection, this ingredient is sought out, and its presence is finely tuned with training. Trainee controllers are almost always in their early twenties, with very few successful over the age of 25. The training focuses on honing the spatial perception so as to best visualize, in time and space, the position of each aircraft under control. Even with the advances in computer software and hardware, the methodology in use has not changed much since the concept evolved in the early forties.The controllers use separation rules to keep each aircraft apart from the others in their area of responsibility and move all aircraft efficiently through "their" airspace and on to the next. It requires a mental picture of the space around a specific aircraft as it relates to all other aircraft. Controllers call this "having the picture" and it is critical at break time or shift change to make the "hand off" 100% successful. The idea of computerizing this operation sounds wonderful in theory, but in reality, is a nightmare. Some progress has been made in this aspect, but it is apparent to many that the successful Air Traffic Controller is determined primarily by the extraordinary working of a human brain that can comprehend and react to any situation or circumstance that arises. In the last sixty years, the success rate is statistically 100%. This is a breed apart. Air Traffic Controllers! "For some time now, I've been afflicted with the belief that flight is possible to man. My disease has increased in severity and I feel that it will soon cost me an increased amount of money, if not my life.” Wilbur Wright "Ten years spent as a pilot on an airplane is in value worth more than an ordinary lifetime." Charles Lindbergh"I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things." Antoine De Saint-Exupery
