George (Small chance) says
I am a radar, automation, and data communication systems specialist for the FAA. Some parts of our profession are declining, but other parts are advancing rapidly. I think it is more likely that we will be privatized than that automation will take the jobs. Troubleshooting testing is about 80% accurate, but the remaining 20% requires human intervention. The hardware aspect also requires human dexterity.
