Inexperienced air traffic controllers in Texas cities

Some of the least experienced air traffic controllers in the country can be found in Dallas and Houston's airports.

That's what a government accountability report says. Officials say many controllers who guide flights at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and Houston's Hobby airport are recent hires with little training.

In fact, Hobby ranked last in percentage for fully certified controllers, though the FAA says more certified controllers have been added.
