FAA Shakes-Up Air Traffic Control Management

National Airspace System: Current Efforts and Proposed Changes to Improve Performance of FAA's Air Traffic Control System

Apr 29, 2011 — Following the recent wave of high-profile incidents of air traffic controller sleeping and watching movies while on the job, the FAA today (4/29) announced a number of management changes and other actions as part of its "comprehensive review" of the nation's air traffic control system. Earlier this month the FAA added extra controllers on the midnight shift at 27 control towers, and instituted new anti-fatigue rules for air traffic controllers.
