AVweb's Question of the Week
*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, AVweb asked if you're worried about the controller shortage.
Most of you — an overwhelming 88% of those who responded — feel controllers are the single most important part of the flight system. We'd better have enough, you said, and they'd better be properly compensated!
7% of those who responded (just under 100 individuals at press time) thought that controllers are important — but didn't believe the FAA would allow a controller shortage to jeopardize safety.
Another 3% of respondents (under 50 of you at this writing) thought there might be more controllers to fill demand if NATCA were willing to negotiate lower salaries.
And a tiny 2% of you (24 people at press time) aren't concerned about the so-called "controller crisis."
