FAA Adminstrator Randy Babbitt said Saturday that he is "prohibiting scheduling practices that have been identified as those most likely to result in air traffic controller fatigue." He didn't say what specifically was being prohibited, but did say the changes would be in effect within 72 hours and that FAA is in discussions with NATCA. The unusual Saturday announcement came after FAA suspended an air traffic controller early Saturday morning for falling asleep while on duty during the midnight shift at the Miami Air Route Traffic Control Center. Babbitt and FAA say more details are forthcoming.
