This weblink will take you to the list of the 149 air traffic control towers being closed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) because of the sequester – also known as the “good-for-nothing  Congress in-Act-ion of 2013.” As can be seen, there are many small and medium-sized communities across the nation impacted by this aversion to making tough decisions.

Without air traffic control, these communities cannot hope to retain or obtain scheduled passenger air service. Furthermore, private aviation will be hindered. Perhaps saddest (or stupidest) of all is there are some newly completed control towers that are going to just sit empty and unused – that’s a “plane” crazy flight plan in a first-world nation!
One can only hope that enough members of Congress will have airports in their districts impacted so they wake up. Otherwise, I fear the planet’s best air traffic control system just took deep nose dive from legislative ineptitude, party loyalty, political ideology.  Sad, sad, so very sad.
