Give me a break. There is huge drama and controversy over an air traffic controller bringing his child to work and having him give directions to pilots at JFK Airport in New York.

I think it’s cute. And it’s not like he was going to say anything that put anyone at risk – it’s not like his dad left him alone to have a cigarette break or something. “Here buddy, you take over, I gotta get a smoke.”

Actual audio is here.

    I agree. The media needs to get a grip. This might be a great influence on this child and he will follow in his Dad’s footsteps. He was in a room FULL of ATC’s and his Dad at his side coaching. Get over it!

    No kidding. If this controller ever put anyone in danger, he should be fired. But this is another matter.

    Yes punish him, because you cannot keep doing this, but minor one at best and let it go.
