Control of air traffic from the ground is only half the story¿the airborne electronic equipment, displays, instrumentation, and human response are necessary to complete the loop in any practicable system. A few versions of collision-avoidance systems are entirely under airborne control. Based upon experience, pilots are wary of the hazards at certain major airports; in approaching other terminals, however, they have a sense of confidence that is inspired by the existence of the latest ATC equipment and facilities that afford a high degree of safety to pilots, passengers, and aircraft.
