    So reading the report , the FAA needs 3.6 BILLION.....BILLION dollars to fix the current system and towers. So the out going FAA Administrator never mentioned this to Congress and the former DOT Secretary Anthony Fox, appointed by a president Obama, did not know anything either.

    No one knew anything..........

    .....and yet, daddy wants a new Next gen system! That's like paying $3,600 for radio repairs in your plane and wanting a $19,000 GPS suite installed. How many owners have that kind of cash on hand? Oh yeah, the last owner just printed more money!

    The new Administrator has his work cut out for him. The FAA has been not protecting the flying public. Lame safety programs by managers that have no aviation experience!!!

    BTW I hear complaints from ATC management that the system is about to crash with loss of experienced controllers and failing equipment.

    Blame this on Administrator Huerta and former DOT Secretary Fox. Neither one has any aviation experience.......WHAT DO WE EXPECT?!?!

    ........Also remember The Obama Administration caused this situation by appointing incompetent managers. It was as if they wanted to destroy the US aviation system!

    I don't think president Trump would appoint anyone that is in Managemenrt now. He knows the FAA is a mess. If anything, Dunkin will be out the door.

    No, The FAA needs new blood with experience unlike the last Puppet Administrator.....

    ...I think LL was referring to the "Great Pilot" of the "biggly one's" former private flight crew and not the current "Standards" group leader. The current "number two" is a "revolving door" person. There are a few that have made "re entry" below the top level. After eight years, "Deep state" will "resist" the "new blood".

    Hopefully, the "biggly one" will consider your recommendations, Rich! It's time to "Make Aviation Great Again"!

    I was referring to the John Dunkin who was Trump's 757 pilot. Very knowledgeable about the state of the FAA and the delapitated infrastructure of today. Remember, LGA is his home airport.

    ... well, of he's the pick, it will be interesting to see if the swamp will drain or if the "deep state" will try to "set up" the "great pilot"? There are several "deep staters" that are hanging around to supplement their "high three" and to "groom" the next generation of "management". Will they be allowed to "hang around" until 2020 to retire, or can they be shown the door in 2018? Time will tell, trying to be patient.

    ... they've been digging for a long time. The boat is "top heavy". They are at a crossroads. Keep and fix it right or contract it out as proposed by congress. No more doing things to just get by. Been waiting for years, what's a few more days?
