Last week, AVweb asked readers to pass judgment on the controller shortage. One week later, we have more results than Question Of The Week has reaped in a very long time ... maybe the largest number ever. (At least we know the union is reading.) An objective 1,962 votes (58 percent) came in to support the air traffic controllers union and its vigilance for our safety in the skies. An additional 25 percent (828 votes) thought that the FAA is turning a blind eye to the impending shortage. The remaining 17 percent (in sharply decreasing numbers, respectively) either criticized Jane Doe's letter; thought the union was looking out for themselves, not pilots; or were appalled by John Carr's response to Ms. Doe.


Would you rather go to a large aviation event, like EAA AirVenture, the NBAA convention, or AOPA Expo, or read about it online?
