In addition, it provides staffing ranges for all of the FAA's air traffic control facilities and actual onboard controllers as of September 25, 2010. This report is required by Section 221 of Public Law 108-176 (updated by Public Law 111-117) requiring the FAA Administrator to transmit a report to the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure that describes the overall air traffic controller staffing plan, including strategies to address anticipated retirement and replacement of air traffic controllers."
