    Air traffic controllers have one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Many controllers at each airport individually control aircrafts at different stages of flight. For example, the stations include fight service, departure, approach, center, en route, clearance and delivery, ground, and tower. Every plane in the sky is under control of an air traffic operator. Each of these controllers is controlling multiple aircraft at once, and controllers have to time everything perfectly. At peak hours
