  •  Airlines Do Serve Uncontrolled Apts (0+ / 0-)

    I'm no fan of the sequestration insanity, but airlines can and will continue to serve airports, even if they don't have a control tower.  There are procedures that enable pilots to do so safely.  

    None of the airports that had towers that were due to close on April 7 have airline service, but some that had towers due to close on April 22 and May 5 did.

    All of this may now be moot, since FAA announced this afternoon that they'll be delaying tower closures until at least June 15.

    Still ridiculous that we're having this discussion at all though.
