    Obviously it involves learning the "language" of air traffic, including the NATO alphabet and terms used to describe aircraft procedures. I have no experience in aviation myself but watched enough air crash videos to know that:
    -you never have an informal conversation with any pilot while on ATC duty
    -you never tell any pilot to override the TCAS instructions given by their aircraft or you'll cause a midair collision (and you could even be killed - the case of Peter Nielsen is a very sad one indeed)
