Abstract:

GAOs review of air traffic controller staffing, at the Chicago OHare and Denver Stapleton Airports and at the Chicago and Denver enroute traffic control centers indicated staffing level problems only at OHare. Some problems with controller training were noted at each facility. FAA is taking steps to alleviate the staffing problem at OHare and to correct some of the training problems. GAO also found no correlation between aircraft accidents or violations of FAAs separation standards for aircraft and controller staffing level or training. Author
