Amazing Statistics


#1

As many times as we fly it seems that we are the only plane in the sky when in reality we are but one of thousands of airborne craft at that vary minute. Modern aviation is really one of the true modern miracles. I copied the Flight Aware Report for 1326 Hours CST 06/28/2014 into an Excel File and these were the results: If you were airborne at this time you would have been one of 6970 aircraft in the sky.

Aren’t these only the a/c that filed IFR? If so, there were probably a great deal more that were VFR.

Very true plus the aircraft that are blocked from flight following by FlightAware. An impressive number of aircraft airborne at the same time and stiill one of the safest modes of transportation. I am reminded of the difference in professionalism of a pilot and their ground based counterparts on our nation’s interstates almost every time I travel.
