Castle tower on closure list

Castle Airport’s air traffic control tower is one of 11 throughout California the Federal Aviation Administration plans to start shut down next month due to automatic spending cuts, according to a closure list released Friday. They are among 149 contract towers that are FAA certified by not staffed by government employees and will stop operating as the agency trims $637 million for the rest of the fiscal year as a result of sequestration cuts.
