A bill to privatize the air traffic control system and remove it from under FAA control has been a topic of concern over the course of the last few months. Many opponents of privatization are concerned that privatizing air traffic control will give total control of the nation’s airspace to the airlines – ultimately harming general aviation. However, so-called privatization would harm more than general aviation, it would harm small airports and negatively impact their employees and customers that rely on local air ports to connect them with larger hubs. This is the case for the airport in Huron, South Dakota.
