Federal Aviation Administration: Efforts to Hire, Staff, and Train Air Traffic Controllers are Generally on Track, But Challenges Remain: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing, Nov 1, 2008 - 15 pages
Each day, the FAA controls the take-offs, landings, and flights of over 50,000 aircraft. To accomplish this mission safely and efficiently, FAA must have a sufficient number of adequately trained air traffic controllers working at its air traffic control facilities. Over the next decade, FAA will need to hire and train nearly 17,000 controllers to replace over 15,000 current controllers, most of whom will be retiring. This massive hiring effort will occur as FAA begins to implement the next generation air transportation system, which will integrate new technologies and procedures into air traffic operations.
