NATCA Salutes Tulsa Controllers for Safety Achievement - (8/23/2001)

WASHINGTON - The National Air Traffic Controllers Association salutes its members at the Tulsa, Okla., Air Traffic Control Tower who are receiving honors for a remarkable safety achievement: Surpassing four million error-free air traffic services operations.

The Federal Aviation Administration is honoring the Tulsa Tower controllers in a ceremony, highlighting their dedicated efforts, professionalism and commitment to aviation safety.

“NATCA is incredibly proud of the Tulsa controllers for this extraordinary achievement,” NATCA President John S. Carr said. “Their performance is indicative of what any of the 15,000 controllers we represent would have done and that’s hold the air traffic control system together safely. Our motto is safety above all. We take great pride in ensuring the safety of all air travelers.”

The 46 men and women who operate the tower 24 hours a day, seven days a week have performed mistake-free service for eight years. The FAA says this is an unprecedented achievement.

“This is what we strive for in the air traffic business: perfection every day,” FAA Administrator Jane F. Garvey stated.
