WTAS: President Trump Proposes A Better System for Passengers and Airlines Alike

- June 6, 2017

President Trump Receives Widespread Praise for His Proposal to Privatize America's Antiquated Air Traffic Control System
 

Chicago Tribune: Getting Washington Out of the Air Traffic Control Business

"The overall benefits would add up faster than a frequent flyer racks up mileage: fewer delays for passengers, jet fuel savings for airlines and much smarter, quicker decision-making by managers freed from bureaucratic molasses."

Washington Examiner: Air traffic controllers union may back Trump on privatization

"NATCA shares the Administration's commitments to infrastructure modernization and providing the National Airspace System (NAS) with a stable, predictable funding stream," he said. "We look forward to reviewing the specifics of the air traffic control (ATC) reform legislation so we can evaluate whether it satisfies our Union's principles, including protecting the rights and benefits of the ATC workforce."

The Wall Street Journal: You've Been Cleared For A Faster Landing

"On Monday Donald Trump responded with a plan for improving American air travel. The President endorsed spinning off air-traffic control from the Federal Aviation Administration, a decades-old idea that would improve passenger experience and safety."

The Washington Post: Trump throws his support behind a good idea

"The idea has a bipartisan pedigree going back a quarter-century to the Democratic administration of President Bill Clinton. Then-Vice President Al Gore’s 1993 government-reinvention project, the National Performance Review, recommended creating a government-owned air traffic control corporation supported by user fees and governed by stakeholders."
