There are times after a 12-2am push where I feel like Will Ferrels character after the debate in Old SchoolMedical issue or not, this just reinforces to me how unsafe single person mids are at facilities where the mid isn’t a joke.
The busiest session of my work week is between 345-545am when I’m working the red eye rush into LAX from Hawaii and the South Pacific all by myself, as well as working non radar departure and arrival clearances off SBA and NTD airspace because they don’t work a mid shift so we just cover them overnight. Totally safe for one person to be there doing that all at 330AM while he’s exhausted. And that’s without whatever happened to this controller here.
Single man mids are unsafe and it goes all the way back to Uberlingen. Obviously more factors there but if there wasn’t one guy watching a ridiculous amount of airspace it would never have happened.
