Airports & ATC

AIRPORTS:…links to pages with data on hundreds of the most impacted U.S. airports:

  • aiR-LinkState Airports lists
    …separate webpages have been constructed for each of the fifty states, offering detailed information about approximately 800 different airports. Details include: airport name & location, airport acreage, number of different aircraft based at the airport (and types), proximity to the four nearest airports with instrument approaches, daily operations count, enplanements data, ATADS data and trends, ATC tower status, AIP funding/subsidy data, and links to relevant webpages (e.g., Wikipedia & FlightRadar24).
  • aiR-LinkOEP-35 Airports (list & links)
    …the links go to the aiREFORM webpages for each airport.
  • aiR-LinkASPM-77 Airports (list & links)
    …Lists all 77 airports, showing their 1991 traffic, peak year for each airport (between 1991 and 2013), and 2013 traffic. Also presents percent changes from Peak Year (nearly all have declined by more than 20%), and an analysis of the extent to which single airlines are monopolizing services at each ASPM airport.
  • aiR-Link2013 ATADS Counts (504 Airports)
    …The list updates FAA’s ATADS counts for all control towers, supplementing the data for earlier years, at ATADS data for 514 Control Towers. One useful added feature is that it presents total annual operations, commercial percentage, and local percentage for each airport. All listed airports include links to the aiREFORM web pages.

ATC Staffing:…links to pages with data on the 500+ U.S. airports with ATC:

  • aiR-LinkATADS data for 514 Control Towers
    …Each day, traffic counts are taken at all U.S. control towers, and fed into FAA’s ATADS (Air Traffic Activity System). The data is accessible online, at: https://aspm.faa.gov/opsnet/sys/Airport.asp. An ATADS query done on 9/25/13 requesting ‘All’ facilities produced 515 locations. The data was built into this page, sorted by airport-code.
    This particular page shows the substantial decline in air traffic activity, by comparing ATADS totals for 2012 with three earlier years: 1990, 2000, and 2007. This is done for each facility. Additionally, for all airports combined, the ATADS count declined 29% from 2000 to 2012, and 20% from 2007 to 2012.
  • aiR-LinkThe ATC Sequester Threat of Early 2013
    428 Control Towers were identified by either FAA or NATCA, as threatened for complete closure or reduced hours (curtailment of the overnight shifts). Furloughs in April worked to stir a large outcry from the Public and from congressional representatives. NATCA and other unions also held rallies. New legislation was quickly passed by Congress, to include paying back FAA personnel who had been forced to furlough.
  • aiR-LinkFAA Staffing Levels (…at 315 ATC facilities)
    …FAA’s Annual Controller Workforce Plan (CWP) contains data indicating staffing targets and actual staffing levels at all FAA ATC facilities. The 2012 CWP was used to produce this analysis of the September 2011 ATC staffing levels. The results show that in recent years, while the number of ATC operations has substantially declined, the staffing has substantially increased. In other words, work productivity per controller has declined a great deal in recent years.
