My name is Darrius Thompson. I am a Master’s Degree candidate at Middle Tennessee State University in the Aviation Administration program. I am conducting my thesis research under the direction of Dr. Paul Craig and Dr. Andrea Georgiou. The goal of my research is to investigate the perception of current scheduling regulations for Air Traffic Control Specialists (ATCS) that are employed by the Federal Aviation Administration.
The research will consist of a completely anonymous short 27-question survey that should take around 10-15 minutes to complete. The survey has been approved by the University's Aerospace faculty and is both Android and iPhone friendly. I am seeking ATCS currently working at Air Traffic Facilities in the U.S. that are staffed by the FAA. This survey will assess the effectiveness of current scheduling rules. Also, the survey will analyze the effectiveness of recent changes and examine external factors that could impact the amount of rest received by ATCS. I am interested in the attitudes and opinions of ATCS across our nation regarding these issues and invite you to participate in this study. Again, the survey is completely anonymous and no identifying information will be collected in order to minimize the risk of participation.
