My Day as an Air Traffic Controller

I’ve heard that a lot of people consider being a flight controller as the most stressful job that you can have.  I still find my job pretty stressful. There’s a whole lot going on all the time. I am regularly “looking for the intern or assistant” who can help me with the many tasks which cause me to get my hands dirty. Juggling isn’t actually what I do, but multitasking is a must and wearing many hats are a constant. Even with all that I do,  my job doesn’t ensure the safety of thousands of people every moment.

So, if that is the case… Why do I have not only 1 but 2 Flight Controller Games on my iPhone?

They’re actually pretty fun. The original was called FlightControl, but the latest that I’ve been playing is Airport Madness Challenge. It is a difficult game, but fun.

So I have a couple of questions.

1) What do you think the most stressful job on earth is?
2) What do you do to unwind from the stress that is your job?
