Trainees could try O'Hare in slow times under supervision. But my training choice would be a normal average tower under supervision and not Valdosta. Valdosta tower is open 15 hours a day to process only 60 operations a day so that's 4 operations each hour. Hardly an efficient learning airport.Right. They should throw the trainees into some real life operations. Perhaps O'Hare would do.
My main concern is all these towers at airports that don't need any. The 5 mile radius class D airspace control eliminates the ultralights and Basic Light Sport and other entry level, antiques, gliders and sport aviators from the populated areas people live. If it was non-towered it would have more operations.
