FAA Investigating Child Allowed To Direct Air Traffic At JFK Airport

A child was allowed to direct traffic at JFK Airport in New York City in February, according to officials.

The Federal Aviation Administration is investigating.

Federal investigators say the child was allowed to direct flights from the control tower, making five transmissions.

The FAA says one of the controllers brought a child to work on February 17 and allowed the child to talk with pilots and issue directions.

Air traffic controllers work with 1,000 flights every day at JFK.
