Eyes on the Sky: A Documentary Series
Across the globe, air travel is returning to normal. Over 150,000 air flights are recorded each day worldwide. The job of directing all those flights falls to Air Traffic Controllers. These are men and women who have “the right stuff”… the ability to think quickly and remain calm under pressure.
From Heintz Media Productions in association with Two Wise Monkeys … a series that tells the dramatic stories of the greatest aviation "saves" over the past 10 years as told through the eyes of the men and women who keep us safe in the air!
YOU BOARD YOUR FLIGHT, find your seat and settle in for a safe trip.
Air travel is part of our daily lives.
We take it for granted because we feel safe. Air Traffic Controllers are
responsible for that.
These are the stories of the men and women who have saved countless lives with their dedication, quick thinking and the ability to remain calm in a life and death situation.
Eyes on the Sky is a new multi-platform television series that will bring stories of amazing saves, survival, and technology in the skies to viewers with first person storytelling, eyewitness accounts and the actual audio and video excerpts from real events.
Stories of near misses, pilots in distress and other freak accidents highlight the surprising
variety of “saves” that occur every day and challenge air traffic controllers across our vast
national aviation system.
In some cases, the save involves a team of players and in other
instances a single unsung professional just “doing their job” under incredible pressure
and high stakes. In addition, real world events that can affect air travel on a massive scale
have created remarkable stories of quick thinking and survival in recent years.
Air traffic controllers juggle a variety of variables and complex scenarios. Their ability to
adapt to ever-changing situations while keeping their composure is a rare skill especially
when faced with life and death situations.
The international aviation system remains safe thanks to the aviation safety professionals who work in a high stakes environment that requires perfection.
