FAA's New Air Traffic Computers Flunk First Exam

Salt Lake City's regional air traffic control center was the test site for roll out of a new computer system to control civilian air traffic in the U.S. Last weekend the FAA tried to deploy the new computers at the Salt Lake City facility, and according to representatives of the air traffic controllers' union, the Salt Lake roll out was unsuccessful. The new electronics are supposed to be operational in all 20 regional FAA centers by the end of next calendar year. Doubtful.
