#Masterclass: The complex task of air control

In this #Masterclass on The Azania Mosaka Show, air traffic controllers are in the spotlight.

Air traffic controllers are tasked with preventing collisions between aircraft and any movement on and off the ground.

Sibusiso Nkabinde is the Head of Aeronautical Search & Rescue Service/Manager at OR Tambo International Airport.

From surveilling aircrafts in real-time, providing pilots with the correct information to ensure they are on track - all while adhering to flight plans, Nkabinde explains the science behind it all and why this is arguably one of the most stressful jobs.

When you have been properly nurtured into this career and you develop a passion for it, more often than not, the word stressful gets substituted to demanding. Then you know you have got the right staff.
