Abstract:

The findings of the statistical analyses used to determine whether the level of safety performance within the air traffic control system was affected by the air traffic controllers strike of August 1981 are presented. The analysis of the operational errors reported during specified periods before and after the August 3, 1981, strike provided statistical confirmation regarding the lack of degradation of national airway safety after the strike. The post-strike operational errors normalized to the volume of operations are shown to be lower than the normalized operational errors reported in the period prior to the strike. Author
