Recently, the Alliance for Aviation Across America provided a thorough analysis of the privatized air traffic control system in the United Kingdom. The analysis looks at different stories from the U.K. and explains what has happened to the system. Currently, it is in “total meltdown”. This is what true privatization looks like, what would happen if we turned over our nation’s air traffic control system the airlines? Our nation’s airspace is a public commodity, giving the airlines control of the airspace would be like giving the highways over to trucking companies.
