How Air Traffic Control Works

Just an important correction here. Planes are separated 1000FT apart if flying in opposite direction while separated by 2000FT if flying in the same direction. 99% of the Times Planes flying East are cruising at odd FL (37000FT,35000FT, etc…) While planes flying West are cruising at even FL (38000FT, 36000FT, etc…). This rule applies (NE=odd) (SW=even).East is anywhere from heading (0-179) West is (180-359).
