Ahead of the Curve:
Privatization is burning the lips of many in the industry at the moment – Is it a solution? Is it inevitable? If so, how do we do it? In the Winter 2013 edition of The Journal of Air Traffic Control, Ed Stevens, ATCA’s Publications Committee chair, authored "Time for a Paradigm Shift to Privatization and User Fees in the U.S.” - which looks at how the structure can be practically applied, using NAV CANADA as a model. Take a look at what Stevens wrote in 2013, and then read the latest issue of The Journal – with various and diverse perspectives from the industry.
