03/25/2013

The FAA on March 22 announced the 149 federal contract towers that will be closing as a result of sequestration. The impacted towers will close over a four-week period beginning April 7. The agency has not yet released the specific dates of closures but has said it will release more information over the coming weeks. According to the FAA, of the 189 federal contract towers initially considered for closure, 24 will remain open, as well as 16 FAA contract tower cost share sites that must remain open because they receive some congressional funds.
