Rush Hour on the Lake

I bet it was a bumpy ride this morning around Atlanta. (Probably still is.) There was all kind of drama in the sky this morning.

Just read your piece that you wrote for The Atlantic published in February, 2011. Loved it! I'll bet if I heard your voice, I'd recognize it, as I have been flying in and out of ATL for the past 24 years as a pilot for the big D.

I just wanted you to know that in the past, it was always comforting to know that no matter how bad the weather, the boys in Atlanta (both ARTCC and TRACON) would take very good care of you. You couldn't say the same about most of the other big terminal areas around the country. Things have changed, however. I guess that's inevitable as time marches on.

I host an aviation podcast called Airline Pilot Guy, which can be found on iTunes or airlinepilotguy.com. I'd love to have you on the show sometime in the future, as I am always looking for experts in various aspects of our aviation world.

Anyway, just wanted to let you know I enjoyed reading your informative article, and above all, agree with your point... the bottom line in increasing capacity in the ATC system is concrete. Long, 150 feet wide pieces.
