How Many In The Air?

Thu Nov 20, 2003 3:57 am

Wondering how many commercial aircraft (including freighters) are flying above the continental U.S. at any given moment. I realize that number varies depending on the day of the week and the time of day. Any info would help.

I have been told that at one time durring the noon hour this about 4000 airplanes in our skys. Im not sure if that # includes civilian planes or not but i dont think it would considering how many of those are in the air too. 4000 sounds about right for the commercial/cargo airplanes.

OK, so what's the typical airborne population of the planet on average? I heard it was about 3m, same as many small countries.
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

well figure there are around 3000 aircraft in the air over the US during a typical day. and say they average out with 100 people each. This makes 300,000 people, or everyone in buffalo NY being airborne at once.
