A majority of registered voters are against privatizing the ATC system, according to a new survey conducted for the Alliance for Aviation Across America, the Air Care Alliance and the League of Rural Voters. The survey of 800 registered voters found that 62 percent are against privatization, noted Selena Shilad, executive director of Alliance. “People generally feel that the FAA should be running air traffic control,” Shilad said. “That’s a public government function, and that should reside within the FAA.”
