Former FAA Chief Operating Officer

“Americans expect an air traffic control system that is properly staffed. The people who work for the FAA want to do it right, but a 1950's government structure will never deliver the performance Americans deserve. The FAA suffers from an unstable procurement system and an unpredictable federal funding structure that hampers the agency from improving technology incrementally so it’s always up to date, which also undermines the FAA's ability to train and maintain a qualified workforce. We should make the changes necessary to preserve America's leadership in global aviation. This can only happen with systemic ATC reform."
