AVweb's Question Of The Week...


Best that we can tell, we received over 4000 responses to our question last week on contract ATC towers. That's about 10 times our normal response rate (and may suggest a technical error ... or union participation.) The overwhelming majority (80 percent) of those responding felt contracting out additional towers would only worsen a developing safety problem. About 12 percent indicated the FAA will maintain better oversight over its own facilities.

To check out the complete results, go to http://www.avweb.com/qotw.
