Raytheon Wins FAA Controller Training Contract


Well-Known Member
What affect will this have on air traffic controllers now and in the future?

"This is a performance-based contract that is designed to allow us to train controllers better, faster and cheaper," said Acting Administrator Bobby Sturgell. "It holds Raytheon accountable for meeting our stringent training requirements, and offers incentives for improving the quality of training, while lowering the overall time and cost."

Some other paraphrases:
Raytheon will be responsible for helping the FAA for a controller's entire career.

Raytheon is awarded the $437 million contract.

How 'bout THIS 'gut'? Sturgell follows-through on his original indication a few months ago, quits in November, leaves the mess to Ruth Leverenz, and then he goes to work for Raytheon?
