  • Planes regularly get too close to each other, safety study finds

    PLANES in Australian airspace breach separation standards and get too close to each other on average once every three days, a new study has found.

    The Australian Transport Safety Bureau looked at separation infringements - sometimes portrayed by media as so-called “near misses” - over five years and found that there are about 100 events a year.

    But it said there was no or low risk of aircraft colliding in about 90 per cent of cases.

    Why ? Is it due to poor ATC or outdated ATC equipment ?

      "The study found about half the separation problems were caused by air traffic controllers and the rest were due to pilot error."
