Library > Midair Collision Avoidance
Welcome Fellow Aviators Welcome Fellow Aviators

Midair collisions are an area of vital concern to everyone who flies an airplane. The actual number of midair's between Air Force aircraft and general aviation aircraft is relatively low; however, 80 percent of reported Air Force near misses occur with general aviation aircraft. Because of increasing general aviation traffic and heavy concentrations of military aircraft involved in training, we want to inform you about the flying activity at Luke Air Force Base. The purpose of this web page is to alert you to the many areas of high midair collision potential in the skies over Arizona and to discuss ways to make them safer. This site will describe the types of military aircraft you may encounter, arrival and departure routes, and military operating areas. It also provides information regarding midair collisions and ways we can all help avoid them. The pilots and controllers assigned to Luke Air Force Base are committed to maintaining a strong, active midair collision avoidance (MACA) program. We hope this site will serve to increase your understanding of Luke's flying activities so we may continue to safely share the skies.
