Newark NJ, on Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced its decision to transfer control of the Newark, New Jersey, airspace region to Philadelphia in a bid to alleviate congestion in the New York City area.

In response to ongoing staffing challenges within air traffic control, the FAA revealed that it has partnered with the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA) to execute a memorandum. This agreement entails the relocation of control operations for Newark from the New York Terminal Radar Approach Control (TRACON) to Philadelphia Tower/TRACON by June’s end.

  1. this will not end well

    1. The only need for controllers to be at the physical location is in the tower.
      TRACON controllers can look at radar screens from 100’s of miles away.
      The major current TRACON for the area is in Long Island.
      If you’re a controller, the extra small pay to live in the area isn’t worth it.
      Its easier to get comparable pay in less expensive places to live that do not have state income taxes.
      Thats why most pilots live in places like FL or TX and ‘commute’ to work if ‘based’ here in the NYC area.
