Air Traffic Controller Errors

Air Traffic Controller Error

Air travel is statistically safer than highway driving, but that serves as little consolation when you or a loved one is involved in an aviation accident. Commercial airliners are true feats of modern science and routinely accomplish something that was long regarded as a fantasy of the imagination. The pilots who control the aircraft rely on their extensive training and professional expertise, but they also happen to be at the mercy of the directions that they receive from air traffic controllers.

Sadly, air traffic controllers occasionally make mistakes that endanger the lives and safety of hundreds of people. Individuals who are adversely affected by these errors may have grounds for pursuing a lawsuit against the responsible parties.

Major Consequences of Air Traffic Controller Errors

One thing that is absolutely clear about air traffic control is that it is an incredibly stressful job. There are many details that must be kept in mind at all times and there are hundreds of planes in a region’s airspace at any given moment. Becoming momentarily distracted or losing track of any of these vital pieces of information can spell disaster. Some of an air traffic controller’s most important directions to aircraft pilots include:

  • Assignment of runways for takeoff and landing
  • Assignment of direction for takeoff and landing
  • Approving clearance for takeoff and landing
  • Directing planes to different altitudes and speeds to avoid collisions
