The winner with the top save of the year, selected from within the regional saves, receives the distinguished President’s Award.

ABOUT THE EVENT: CFS 2013 last March boasted the largest attendance in the history of the event with over 1,000 people gathering together despite sequestration taking effect just days before. The 2014 conference is expected to draw just as many people, if not more.

CFS is open to not just NATCA members or air traffic controllers, but any person interested or participating in aviation safety, technology and building relationships with other aviation professionals. Airport and airline officials, air traffic controllers, commercial and general aviation pilots, business aviation professionals and government leaders all attend and find immeasurable value in the conference.


WHAT TO EXPECT IN 2014: Conference planners have already confirmed that Gordon Graham, a leading professional risk management speaker, will open CFS. It is imperative that you make plans to arrive on no later than noon on Monday, March 24, 2014, in order to hear Graham speak. Don’t miss a minute of all of the exciting moments of CFS 2014!

As in years past, CFS will conclude with the 10th annual Archie League Medal of Safety Awards banquet on the evening of March 26, 2014. 
In the days between Graham's speech and the Archie League Awards banquet, conference attendees will have a packed agenda to keep them busy. There will be new NATCA Charitable events, expanded facility participation and additional breakout sessions. These additional breakout sessions will allow attendees to build their own conference agenda based on their individual interests, and will focus on technology and human factors, including sessions on remote towers, fatigue and crew resource management.
Other activities for CFS 2014 include a future leaders mentorship brunch on Monday, March 24, and a safety course on March 27. While the mentorship brunch is invitation-only, all CFS attendees will be able to sign up for the safety course during registration. The all-day safety course will cover personal professionalism, safety management systems, reporting and many other topics.
