By BOB HOUSER Complete electronic control of air traffic? Who. needs it? On May 1, 1956, "the Civil Aeronautics Board began providing military air'-bases and airport managers : .with form questionnaires in' which pilots could describe, in effect, "how close I came to being killed :oday." . . , It's, called a "near-collision" report. In the 10 months ending in June 1957, there were 1,080 near collisions reported involv ing 1,500 passengers.-The-CAB said the real total was probably much higher because some certainly were not reported. * * * * , MORE THAN HALF Involved military planes. Most occurred around big "cities with New-York,'Washington, Los Angeles ' and 'San Francisco leading the list'in that order.. On July 2, 1956,. the Budget Bureau publicized a government report on weaknesses 'in the nation's then 21-year-olc traffic control systenv designed to handle 160-mph DC3sV It said passenger airlines then were averaging four near collisions per day. There were 58 reported near- ollisions·'from/April to':,June ast year^-.most r of them in the ^os Angeles-Long Beach .area; ,vith 43 involving military., atr- raft .. .- ' · · ; " ' ; ' : - ;' ' , ·* * *. · * -, '·' . ·'·'; DESPETE continuing·'· fatal- ties, both military and cpmmer^ ial flight safety- records .Save een remarkably-good' inview f- the. .increased .air.-/traffic, higher speeds and conversion to ets.

There are.' already -; too many planes flying at top grea a speed for most air, lanes under Civil Aeronautics^dmin jstration control. · 2. Communications are too slow. 1 When a pilot Js-.distan from a control center he mus radio through-his company ra dio room; he can't .talk directly with the · controller. CAA is-at tempting to remedy-this now b: b u i l d d n g peripheral, radic ranges. These will-eliminate th time-consuming relay of raes sages: ' 3.,All towers are now oper ated manually. CAA is cur reritly spending 13 'million dol lars on 27 -long range radar sets which will enable operators to keep track of planes elec tronically. (A contract'for such a facility in' this area_iis"'ex pected to be let.soon'.and per haps be available fall. 4. There Is a shortage of. per sonnel. More men are needed and it takes 18 months to tw years to train them. (A heavj training program is in progres now, the CAA'says.) When th two-year lag is. overcome, "th pipeline will be full of trainee and the shortage should dis appear. 5. Parallel airway* are heed cd. This will require a lot o new navigational aids; On electronic aid, a compromise be tween military arid civilian de veipoments is only now begin ning to go into operation. .
