MANHATTAN — It might be time to rethink "Take Your Child To Work" day.
The Federal Aviation Administration is looking into an incident where an air traffic controller let a child give directions to pilots at JFK Airport, several outlets reported.
The kid, who appeared to be under adult supervision, made five transmissions to pilots on Feb. 16, according to a video first released by a Boston TV station.
“That’s what you get when you get the kids out of school,” one JFK controller said on the tape, which was later released on multiple news outlets.
The day after the first incident, a second child believed to be the air-traffic controller's kid spoke with more two planes, the New York Post reported.
A tower controller and his supervisor have both reportedly been suspended by the FAA.
"Pending the outcome of our investigation, the employees involved in this incident are not controlling air traffic," the FAA said in a statement. "This behavior is not acceptable and does not demonstrate the kind of professionalism expected from all FAA employees."
