Not trying to get overly detailed... I've inadvertently had conversations with Air Traffic Control personnel on three separate occasions and this type of response is consistent with my experiences. For the serious UFO investigator, I would encourage you to form a professional investigatory relationships with your local air traffic personnel in order to collect observational data over an extended period of time. It's worth asking rather than assuming they wouldn't cooperate. Make it as open as possible and state your case in writing: best time to collect information, what you will do with the information (let them control this as much as they're willing to cooperate), and that you will share your analysis and findings with them. Radar is by far the best source of high tech equipment available to anyone. Radar can reflect off metal surfaces and ionization clouds depending upon the radar wavelength, material density, absorption, and reflectance coefficients. They can also give height, distance, and size information which could be a valuable aid in finding ground observers. Weather radar operators are another source of similar information operating at a different wavelength and operational-functional ability. It is uncertain how often radar is filtered for observation which could limit some of it's potential for gathering information and it is worth establishing what limitations might exist before embarking on a full study or attempting such and informal relationship. However, there is no doubt that you will learn something valuable in the shortest time possible with the highest potential for success over the long term. Anyone with a technical bent can learn quite a bit about radar in a short period of time. I would also encourage you to get a (the) radar operators manual if available as well, even another one from years past. Viktor Listen to 'Strange Days...
