White House Pushes to Privatize Air Traffic Control

The White House has thrown its support behind a proposal to privatize the nation's air traffic control (ATC) system as part of its plan to improve the country's infrastructure.

The administration is seeking to create a nonprofit organization empowered to take over the ATC system from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and finance its operations by charging fees to flyers. The new group would also be expected to reach out to the financial markets and borrow against that income stream to support, and hopefully accelerate, ATC modernization.
