I noticed when browsing the FAA's page the other day that there is currently no demand for controllers (in any field). Is this because of the threat posed by sequestration (budget cuts) and the news that as many as 2,000 controller positions may be cut?
I wonder what that means for all current controller students. Are they going to find themselves unemployed once graduated?
Has the FAA made any public announcements regarding the future of controller applicants? How will the demand for controllers change as the FAA transitions to NextGen?
