bears says

"A non-towered airport, sometimes referred to as an uncontrolled airport, is an airport with no operating tower, or air traffic control unit. The vast majority of the world's airports are non-towered, and even airports with control towers may operate as untowered during off-hours, typically during the night."

And that was written before the sequester

The vast majority of uncontrolled airports are used only by small aircraft, mostly non-commercial. We're talking now about closing towers at airports that handle jet airliners.
