The Air Traffic Control (ATC) system is still in dire need of a long overdue overhaul. Re-open The FAA Academy in Oklahoma City for all new ATC hires. Send them to school with a policy and goal of sending into the field only the best potential candidates. Since the FAA closed the FAA Academy the weeding out process has been shifted to "Field Facilities" working with "live" air traffic. Am I the only one that sees this as inherently dangerous to the flying public? Question: If your loved ones are flying from point A to point B, do you not want the best trained Air Traffic Controller working the flight or someone that passed Air Traffic Control because the FAA has a "no fail" policy?
