AOPA's Fuller: FAA sequestration cuts not safe or sensible

AOPA President Craig Fuller on March 6 leveled sharp criticism at the sequestration cuts planned by the Obama administration and the Federal Aviation Administration, suggesting that the decision to close control towers and scale back aviation services constitutes a risk to aviation safety. "The White House budget office has forced troubling, and possibly dangerous, cuts on the FAA," Fuller said. "It doesn't have to be that way. Rational savings can be found, and we are ready to work with the FAA and the Department of Transportation to build workable solutions." AOPA Online.
