The purpose of this study was to determine if privatization of the Air Traffic Control (ATC) System would cause a reduction in ATC operating cost and improve air traffic safety. An analysis was made to determine the effect privatization had on operating cost and air traffic safety involving the privatized ATC systems of Australia, Germany, New Zealand, and Switzerland. The study showed reduced operating cost and increased safety would result from corporate structuring of the ATC system. It was concluded that corporate style policy regarding personnel management and equipment procurement procedures would increase efficiency, which would reduce operating cost and increase ATC flight safety.
