The Press

Media’s old story & misunderstanding of the problem may allow FAA Administrator to find a win/win Answer

The press, doing what it does best, has been blaming the FAA for ATC fatigue and accusing the FAA of hiding a “secret” NASA report recommending a solution. The press knew about the NASA report back then and the FAA did not force the controllers to the “rattler” schedule. That said, it might be a good idea for NATCA and the FAA to fully embrace the safest solution at the expense of some three day weekends.
