CHICAGO – Air traffic controller Patrick Eberhart of Detroit Metro TRACON (Terminal Radar Approach Control) was presented with the NATCA President’s Award last night at the Archie League Medal of Safety Awards for his determination under duress and dedication to safety.

Relying on a directional procedure not used at his facility in 10 years, he depended on his experience and was able to safely guide an aircraft to landing with malfunctioning instruments and low fuel.
