I know it's probably a stupid question, but still I'd like to ask.


Why don't planes collide in the air.

Is it that only one plane flies at a point in time?

That's why airports have Air Traffic Control (ATC).

They are people trained to monitor airplanes on the ground and in the air. They speak with pilots (through radio) before and during flights, to prevent a collision.

(ATC are often based inside those tall towers in airports.)

Airplanes also have collision avoidance equipment showing them every other airplane in the vicinity. The equipment will usually warn them if they are on a collision course with another airplane.

Even at that, collisions still happen, but they are very rare because:

(i) There are more cars than airplanes.
(ii) The air is a three-dimensional space.

It has length, breadth, and height compared to roads which only have length and breadth. That makes roads two dimensional.

This basically means two airplanes can be on the same "lane" but with one flying over the other, which makes collision rarer.

Planes don't collide because, before every flight, the pilot submits a flight plan after due discussions with the flight dispacher, to the ATC.
The flight plan contains the route, cruise speed, altitude, etc that the plane is going to undertake throughout the flight.
So the ATC, would guide the pilots strictly according to the predetermined plan, and Also monitor them with radar.
These are the basics.
So planes colliding is almost impossible
There are more technicalities to it, but I left them out.

It has happened before but they have beacon on board to let them know if another plane it too close or approaching too fast. This allows the pilot to take precautionary measures.

The plane is not putting on nose mask. The two plane should be isolated and quarantine. Covid 19 is real. Stay safe

No be joke oo!
What do you expect when you pull a pilot out of a tarven and hand him the keys to an aircraft?
Thank God they didn't take off before the pilot decided to take a nap.
Fear alcohol!

Yes, that's the work of Air Traffic Controllers. They make sure no 2 planes fly close to one another.

There have been more than 10 collisions in the history of aviation.

Because of communication between aircrafts and towers, time duration between flying of diferent airplanes (eg. Airplanes have arrival time and take off, when an airplane takes off to a destination, an arriving aircraft lands in the airport 30 or more. Also, should 2 aircraft be going the same destination, they have a radar with path to follow which is totally different from one to another.
