This article calls on the U.S. federal government set up an independent corporation answerable to all aviation interests -- commercial, general, airport and passenger -- in order to stave off the paralysis of the air traffic control (ATC) system in the country. It explains that it is only a matter of time before the ATC system collapses because of increase in air travel and small aircraft. It contends that the ATC should be removed from the control of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.
