FAA Administrator Randy Babbitt
In lieu of the recent nappings of air traffic controllers while on duty the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will be giving them an extra hour of sleep between shifts.
The FAA will extend the break between shifts from eight to nine.
As of now there have been five instances of air traffic controllers sleeping on the job.
Germany and Japan actually allow breaks for sleep and provide a quiet room with a cot.
