Archie League Awards Media Coverage


NATCA has received a tremendous amount of national and local media coverage regarding this year's Archie League awards, particularly the President’s Award-winning King Air flight assist featuring controllers from ZMA and Fort Myers assisting Doug White, who piloted the plane to safety after the pilot suffered a heart attack and died shortly after takeoff from Marco Island, Fla., on Easter Sunday last year.

National television stories on the NBC Today Show and Fox News Channel led to local NBC and FOX stations around the country to air coverage as well, multiplying the numbers of millions of viewers who learned about our members’ great work.
