Any proposal to amend the existing system must be thoroughly checked.

Once again the President of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee was elected, Pennsylvania Republican, who said that the reform of FAA is a top priority.

This coincides with the opinion of President-elect Donald Trump.

Privatization of air traffic controllers began to require major airlines in 1980. Congress refused them.

The right time to revive privatization comes with the newly elected president Trump.

Air traffic control FAA has too much bureaucracy and little chance for change. In this state of heightened demand will only result in more costs. This is the opinion of Schuster.
