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.
