ATC 100 is about looking at the profession over the last hundred years. It’s important to document our history but equally important is to document our present so that in the future, people will look back at this event, and we'll become part of their history.
The idea of documenting the present translated into projects like the One Hundred Faces and the One Hundred Ways to Say Air Traffic Controller. Striking in all of these is how passionate controllers are about their profession. It doesn't matter what country you come from, put a group of controllers in a room or a group of controllers with others in the room, and you can pick them out.
To illustrate this, Julio from Portugal, Alessandra from Italy, Ricard from Sweden and Christian from Estonia volunteered to present their views on what being an air traffic controller means to them.
