The primary service of the Air Traffic Organization is to move air traffic safely and efficiently. Our stakeholders are commercial and private aviation and the military. Our employees are the service providers — the 35,000 controllers, technicians, engineers and support personnel whose daily efforts keep aircraft moving safely through the nation's skies.
We pride ourselves on our safety record. With more than 7,000 takeoffs and landings per hour, and more than 660 million passengers and 37 billion cargo revenue ton miles of freight a year, the men and women of the Air Traffic Organization safely guide approximately 50,000 flights through the national airspace system every day.
