President Donald Trump wants to move the national air traffic control system from the FAA to a private non-profit corporation.
Their union, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, endorsed Shuster's bill after winning assurances that controller wages, benefits and collective bargaining rights would be protected. When Rep. Bill Shuster (R, Pa.) put forth a plan to accomplish this in 2016, it stalled on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. Huerta released a brief statement, saying he supports "looking at new ways to help us provide stable and sufficient funding to more rapidly modernize our system, while maintaining the highest level of safety".
The proposal outlined criteria that the new entity must meet to oversee USA air traffic control, including safety, national security, AND cybersecurity. "For the airlines, it will save them money". Over 60 countries, including the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Spain, have self-supporting air traffic control corporations.
"Paul Hudson, group president and longtime member of the FAA Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee, stated", Adopting this scheme would mean handing the airlines (for free) control over a core public asset, and providing them a almost unbridled power to extract new fees and increased taxes from passengers".
"Today we're proposing to take American air travel into the future, finally", Trump said, adding that "We're proposing reduced wait times, increased route efficiency and far fewer delays".
Charles Everett Jr., executive director of the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority, said he'll be watching to see if the legislative proposal will include airport officials on that board, which Shuster's proposal previously did not.
In fact, airlines -caused issues from broken planes, late crews, and other glitches accounted for most delays, more than weather and air traffic control combined.
"We will continue to work with the administration and members of Congress including the General Aviation Caucus to ensure that safety, access, cost, and the freedom to fly are protected and addressed", Baker said.
Should the Federal Aviation Administration continue to handle air traffic control services, or do you think the USA needs a privatization plan?
But winning congressional approval could prove hard. Sen.
Canada has a public private partnership, and it has led to a system that is more automated and efficient, according to Davis. As Chairman of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, I would never support a policy that would endanger the safety of our aviation system and passengers.
Democrats have also pointed to the unprecedented safety under the current system and noted repeated computer system failures in recent years by US airlines, questioning whether they are ready to handle complex technology modernization.
House of Representatives Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement that Trump was recycling "a exhausted Republican plan that both sides of the aisle have rejected" and would "hand control of one of our nation's most important public assets to special interests and the big airlines".
