My wife and I like to hop in our plane and fly to Florida for long weekends. I am pretty confident in my flying abilities but wonder if the shutdown that's coming(for sure) will affect air traffic controllers!
Over the last few days some of those controllers have been caught napping on the job. When I am flying I depend on the controllers to keep me out of the way of the big boys or little boys(it doesn't matter).
I know police and firemen remain on the job but what about air traffic controllers? I file my flight plan with Lockheed Martin so that doesn't concern me but the guys behind the radar screens should be considered critical jobs.
We are headed to Destin,Florida on Saturday in the plane or in the car if the controllers are absent.
