PHL-CAW Response to USATODAY.com - FAA's efforts fall short

Money is Power --Once the FAA is given an independent funding stream it will be accountable to no one. Mr. Poole must have graduated from the ENRON School of Economics.

Unfortunately, the FAA has two big problems in applying such technologies. First, it has a terrible track record of designing and redesigning such systems, ballooning their costs and getting them in service many years late. And every time the federal deficit becomes a problem (such as now), the FAA's budget is cut, reducing modernization funds. The agency's new Air Traffic Organization (ATO) is supposed to run like a business. And it is off to a good start, headed by a well-respected former airline executive. But as long as it is hostage to the federal budget, this organization won't be able to modernize as a real business does. USATODAY 04/01/04
