Two things we are always advised to never talk about is religion and politics. And, that is, of course, sound advice. However, discussing issues important to one’s vocation, or avocation, is not only proper, but often necessary! Compound that with a “safety factor,” and you can see why anyone involved with the realm of aviation should be cognizant of what’s going on in regard to NextGen AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND KING AIR 300 TRAINING.
“It is possible,” Dale Wolcott, President of TURBINE TRAINING in Manhattan, Kansas, noted with noticeable concern in his voice, “that this country’s Air Traffic Control (ATC) system is a little antiquated. And,” he continued solemnly, “it may be time to do something about it.
There are several reasons this is true. The system is some forty years old, and in the realm/field of technology that is a noticeable gap. The skies are certainly more crowded today than ever before, both with manned and non-manned aircraft. Our government is aware of this, as Bill Shuster (R-Pennsylvania), Chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, drafted a reform that will bring the ATC more up to date.
“As I understand it,” TURBINE TRAINING Vice President Jason Wolcott shared, “the Shuster reform is based on the success of changes in Canada, where they turned ATC over to a private, non-profit corporation, Nav Canada. Much to their credit, the change there has been a big success.”
