A control tower (ATCT) is the name of the air traffic control unit responsible for movements around an airport, and is also the name of the building from which the unit operates. Most of the world's airports are non-towered or mandatory frequency — only a small minority of the busiest airports have enough traffic to justify a control tower, though some airports may open temporary tower units during special events like the Oshkosh Airshow.
