8.2 Air Traffic Control Entities
Two air traffic control entities that work side by side are the Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT), Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) for civilian airports, or RAPCON (Radar Approach Control) for military airfields that have them. Pilots will initially start coordination with the ATCT where they will get their ground movement instructions for departure from the airport, or when aircraft arrive to their destination. Not only does the ATCT give instruction to pilots on the ground, they also give aircraft instruction and clearance to land or take off from the airport and cover the airports air space from 3 to 30 miles out (NATCA, 2019). After an aircraft has departed from an airport, pilots are then instructed to contact their next controller known as a TRACON or RAPCON controller. This next controller controls departing traffic out of the airfield while airborne, or controls arriving aircraft to the airfield before handing them off to the ATCT, or ARTCC. TRACON/RAPCON controllers control aircraft 20 to 50 miles from an airfield at an altitude of 17,000ft before sending them off to the ARTC or center when an aircraft has departed (NATCA, 2019). Both of these entities work side by side when controlling aircraft and are crucial when instructing pilots instructions.

For this activity, you will compare and contrast two different air traffic control entities.
In your blog, explain, with support, your chosen entities and detail how each entity supports air traffic management to include similarities and differences. You may choose any two entities, national or international, that you wish. The goal is to engage in a collaborative and constructive debate that promotes critical thought and reflection.
Please responses to your classmates need to be thoughtful, thorough, and comprehensive. This means your initial post needs to be about a paragraph and thoroughly explain your answer. Additionally, include a properly formatted in-text citation and reference to support your position. After you create your blog, you will be expected to engage in dialoguewith at least oneof your classmates. Your responses to your classmates’ blog entries need to be more than “I agree/disagree.” You need to elaborate and explain why you agree or disagree, and you may even want to ask additional questions.
