Reforming the Federal Aviation Administration: Lessons from Canada and the United Kingdom
Professor Oster examines air traffic control systems in Canada and the United Kingdom to see whether their experience with funding capital investments might be applicable to the United States. Both Canada and the United Kingdom have converted to private sector operating models for their air traffic control systems.
This report explores the key issues facing FAA and describes the alternative models being used by Canada and the United Kingdom. By evaluating their successes and challenges, Professor Oster provides valuable information and insights that we trust will be helpful in the forthcoming debate over alternative air traffic management models for the United States.reforming FAA, reform, Federal Aviation Administration, Canada, United Kingdom, Clinton Oster, John Strong, air traffic control, overview of FAA, U.S aviation, Department of transportation, IBM Center for The Business of GovernmentOrganizational Transformation
