One reason is the FAA's struggle to modernize the systems that support safe flight. Many in Washington are wondering whether the system would function more efficiently as a commercial entity. Trish Gilbert, executive vice-president of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain NATCA members' concerns over the proposed switch.

That will mean fewer soundings. Matt Stuck, the First Coast Guard District Aids-to-Navigation Manager, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the modernization efforts.
