U.S. Rep. Nick LaLota Tours New York Center

U.S. Representative Nick LaLota (N.Y.-1) recently toured New York Center (ZNY) where he met with local members Cory Davids, Bill Ordon, and David Romano. The controllers began the tour by explaining what airspace the facility covers and the issues they face concerning staffing at ZNY, and nationwide. To help LaLota better understand the problem, they explained the ideal staffing numbers as determined by the CRWG, and how the Agency calculates their staffing numbers by counting trainees the same as certified professional controllers (CPCs).

Davids, Ordon, and Romano also brought the congressman to the control room floor and showed him the four domestic areas, focusing on the area that handles the majority of New York and New Jersey metro area departures and routing for Washington National Airport arrivals.
