In an emergency, a pilot's best friend is often an air traffic controller, whose calm and professional voice can offer guidance and reassurance in a stressful time. Every year, NATCA's Archie League Awards honor those controllers whose work helped to resolve dangerous situations as safely as possible. In today's podcast, hear audio excerpts from three of these emergencies when a Learjet crew was disoriented by hypoxia, when a Caravan pilot lost an engine at night, and when a nervous student pilot had trouble getting safely back to the airport. For transcripts and audio from all 11 of this year's award winners, click here.
