Sen. Feinstein Calls for More Air Traffic Controllers

Posted: Updated:
Senator Dianne Feinstein says the shortage of air traffic controllers in San Diego and Los Angeles is a disaster waiting to happen.

She is calling on the incoming Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood, to do something about it.

In a letter sent to LaHood, Feinstein pointed out that staffing of certified air traffic controllers at LAS and the Traycon facility near Miramar has dropped from 236 in 2004 to just 164 in 2008.

Southern California is the fourth busiest air space in the nation.
