This Week's Question | Last Week's Results


Whether you think it's a crisis or a bunch of hot air, growing concerns over ATC are on everyone's mind.  Last week, AVweb asked readers what single issue they think is driving the controller dilemma.

The biggest portion of our readership fingered power as the key issue.  31% of those who responded say Congress, the FAA, and NATCA are all wrestling for control of the industry.

Coming in a close second was jobs, which garnered 29% of your votes though readers were split as to whether NATCA's efforts to protect controller jobs or the FAA's efforts to unload them on the private sector are the key issue.

How did the other factors we listed (money and safety) fare in our poll?
And what percentage of AVweb readers said there really was no crisis at all?
