As humans, our relationship to flight has changed dramatically in the last century. Air travel has developed from a fantasy into a common and widely used mode of transportation. There are about 100,000 flights in the world every day, according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA). It estimates that 3.7 billion passengers worldwide will fly during 2017. In the United States, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reports that an all-time high of nearly 718 million passengers flew on 8.6 million flights during 2016.
