The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has 21 en route centers that control aircraft flying through United States airspace. These air traffic control centers monitor and track the nearly 7,000 aircraft that fly over the nation at all different times of the day. Using radars, the centers safely guide planes at high altitudes through the air each day.
The United States has the most up-to-date technology and equipment and has the safest air traffic control system; however, mid-air collisions—although less common—do occur and usually result in tragedy.

Making Air Traffic Safer
Even with people, procedures, and monitoring systems in place, a mid-air collision can result from a number of situations, including:
