(Studio) Federal Aviation Administration proposes rules to cut air traffic and flight delays.
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(No Location Given) New rules would help but not cure problem. Rules would place limits on number jets and private planes to take off and land at 5 biggest airports. Kennedy Airport limited to 80 flights hour; La Guardia 60; Newark 60, Washington National 60 and O'Hare 135 from 6 a.m. to midnight. Rules require radar identifying equipment, filing flight plans and having 2 pilots. Must be able to fly 165 m.p.h. No plane can take off unless guaranteed landing time. Goal is to end delays for public. Air traffic to increase 250% over next 10 years New and expanded airports needed. New rules like band-aid, massive surgery needed.
